Petrol station worker 'shot and killed by customer' he asked to wear face mask



A petrol station worker has been fatally shot by a customer after asking him to wear face mask.



The 20-year-old cashier in Idar-Oberstein, west Germany, died of gunshot wounds on Saturday, September 18, after a disagreement with a shopper over Covid regulations.



The suspect, a 49-year-old man, is thought to have left the store after being asked to wear a mask before returning, wearing a face covering and reportedly wielding a gun.



After another argument between the two, he shot the youngster, it is claimed.



The suspect then fled the scene on foot, public prosecutor Kai Fuhrmann told news agency DPA.







The suspect told officers he felt "stressed out" by coronavirus measures, prompting the attack.
