The two people murdered by the anti-Semitic shooter, who rioted near a synagogue in Germany, were identified on Thursday as a music super fan and young construction worker.
The 40-year-old Jana Lange went home On Wednesday, around noon, she passed the temple of the Jewish Community of Halle, where the shooting suspect Stephan Balliet was about to break in, the local website Stern reported.
She was shot down as she passed the House of Worship. Killer drove to a kebab shop where he shot a 20-year-old identified only as Kevin S. He was at lunchtime from a nearby construction site where he worked as a painter opposite RTL.
"He had his whole life in front of him," said his disturbed mother, who was only identified as 43-year-old Mandy S.
"I do not know how my life should go on." The first victim, Lange, could not work for medical reasons, devoting her time to going to concerts and collecting autographs, her friends told the outlet.
One of her favorite artists, German Stefan Mross, singer and TV presenter, praised her Thursday on Facebook and wrote: "The rampage in Halle has taken us from our most loyal fan" and described Lange as "fun-loving".
Both victims The murders were captured in a disgusting video the shooter made with a smartphone mounted on a helmet. The material was transferred to about 2,200 people on Twitch.
The video shows the suspect attempting to breach a Jewish cemetery in front of the synagogue – as he shoots a passing woman and later fires another shot at her lifeless body as he calls "Pig!". According to Agence France-Presse
the 27-year-old Balliet appeared on Thursday in a German federal court where the prosecutor said he had been inspired by the massacre of a New Zealand mosque in March and brought his assault on more imitators to life.
A screed, which he presumably published on a German bulletin board, said the gunman had deliberately chosen a synagogue on Yom Kippur – a holy day in Judaism – but had also considered attacking a mosque for two homicides and nine attempted homicides were charged with the "act of terrorism" that the suspect had labeled as a "massacre."
In Balliets, nine pounds of explosives were found car, and he "wanted to go to the synagogue to kill many people," Frank said.
Among the people in the house of worship, there are 10 Americans and several Israelis, especially in Halle, to celebrate the holiday.

"The boy was only online," his father, who was not named, told the newspaper.
