So, what went wrong here? There were armed police in the area, but as it usually happens in these cases, they're unable to help unless they just happen to be in the right place at the right time.Two U.S. airmen were killed and two others were wounded at Frankfurt airport when a man opened fire on them at close range with a handgun, the first such attack on American forces in Germany in a quarter century.
President Barack Obama called the Wednesday shooting an "outrageous act."
The alleged assailant, identified as a 21-year-old Kosovo man, was taken immediately into custody and was being questioned by authorities, said Frankfurt police spokesman Manfred Fuellhardt.
Family members in Kosovo described the suspect as a devout Muslim, who was born and raised in Germany and worked at the airport.
Was it that the airmen were not armed themselves or the bus driver? Would they have been able to intervene before the attacker got off his shots?
