A gunman was shot dead by police after killing three women – including two cops – and taking a cleaning lady hostage.
The knife-wielding man was killed in a dramatic police shootout after the suspected terror attack in Liege, Belgium.
Footage shows the gunman, named as Benjamin Herman, wielding two handguns after killing his victims. He is understood to have been on leave from prison at the time of the attack.
The 36-year-old was known to the police for theft, damage to public property, drug trafficking and was thought to be violent, it is claimed. He was also considered “unstable” and had no contact with his family,
Two policewomen were among three people killed in Belgium on Tuesday when a man approached them from behind and stabbed them. He then took their guns and shot them in what authorities have since deemed a terror attack.
The man then made his way into a high school where he took a woman employee hostage, triggering a major intervention by armed police. Pupils were moved to safety as a gunbattle broke out that sent people in the street racing for cover. Several police were wounded before the attacker was finally killed.
