September 18, 2009|Times Wire Reports

An 18-year-old armed with an ax, knives and Molotov cocktails attacked his high school in southern Germany, injuring eight students and a teacher before police shot him, authorities said.

The teenager, who was not identified, entered the school in Ansbach at 8:30 a.m., Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann said.

He went to the third floor and threw a Molotov cocktail into an 11th-grade classroom, then attacked some nearby girls with the ax.

He was shot five times and was in critical condition, officials said. A teacher and six students suffered burns.
