German police fatally shot an Afghan man after he killed a compatriot and wounded three others during the Euro 2024 soccer tournament’s opening game, authorities reported on Saturday.

The 27-year-old Afghan first attacked a 23-year-old compatriot with a “knife-like object” in Wolmirstedt, a town 130 kilometers west of Berlin, on Friday evening. The victim succumbed to his injuries.

The assailant then attacked a group watching the Germany-Scotland game in a private yard, injuring three German men, two seriously.

When officers arrived, the man attacked them with the same weapon. Two officers shot him, and he died shortly after in a hospital.

The motive remains unclear. Saxony-Anhalt’s Interior Ministry reported increased police presence across the state. The soccer tournament, hosted in cities across Germany, runs through July 14.
