ein Polizist shot a 37-year-old man in Gelsenkirchen on Sunday, who is said to have approached several officers with a knife in his hand. The man initially hit an patrol car with an object that was parked in front of the police station south in the Ruhr area city, said Christopher Grauwinkel, spokesman for the police in Gelsenkirchen. Then the man with the object in his raised hand approached the officials.
