Biography

Swiss gunman Friedrich Leibacher, a 57-year-old Zurich resident, opened fire with an assault rifle Thursday morning about 10:30 AM on a meeting of the state legislature, killing 14 lawmakers and officials, before killing himself with a handgun. It was the bloodiest episode in Swiss criminal history.

The "querulous troublemaker, whose past included a conviction for child molestation and other crimes, was dressed in an official-looking uniform when he entered the parliament buildings. He fired dozens of rounds in deadly accurate bursts from his 5.6mm Sturmgewehr 90. The assault rifle was a civilian version of the model issued to soldiers of the militia army to keep in their homes

Police said Leibacher had been convicted of a string of offenses 30 years ago, including sexual offenses against children, public indecency and falsifying documents. They did not provide details of the convictions. In 1988, he threatened a bus driver with a revolver.

Neighbors said that Leibacher was quiet and a loner.

This attack is not just an attack on people, but an attack on our democratic institutions, Swiss President Moritz Leuenberger told a memorial service in Zug after the carnage.

In Switzerland, even the president usually travels without protection, the interior minister goes to work by public transport and the public has open access to parliamentary sessions.
