German district president found dead with gunshot wound

The president of the regional council of the central German city of Kassel was found dead in his garden early Sunday morning. He was shot with a short-barreled weapon from close range, according to investigators. There was no indication of suicide.

Medical officials attempted to resuscitate Lübcke, but their efforts were unsuccessful, authorities said at a press conference on Monday.

Police said they were looking for a perpetrator and investigating in "all directions." However, there was yet no information about possible suspects or a motive. Authorities also refused to answer most reporters' questions about the apparent crime, citing the ongoing investigation.

Regional news outlet HNA reported that Lübcke had been found with a bullet wound to his head, and that police had found no weapon at the scene.
