Three people were seriously hurt, and as he attempted to flee the train, the boy was shot dead by the police. The motive of the attack is yet to be ascertained. BBC adds that the air in Germany is tense especially because of the attack across the border in France, the most recent being the Bastille Day attack in Nice, France, that left at least 84 people dead.
