"First show with didn’t exactly go as planned – show cancelled and us being shut into the venue all night," said Ithaca in a tweet. "Thankful no one was hurt. We’re so sorry to everyone with tickets and we hope to see you soon! Tonight we’re in Bochum, let’s try this again."

According to Reuters, a male suspect was arrested after a special unit got into the pharmacy next door to the Die Stadtmitte. Police stated there were multiple hostages involved, which Reuters cites Stuttgarter Zeitung in saying "two people had been taken hostage and that there was a demand for a ransom of a single-digit million euro sum."
