A quote from the story: "Koehler said investigators will follow up on statements the suspect made in questioning to determine whether he might have converted to Islam."
From the Associated Press:
The 27-year-old, who had previously been in psychiatric care, made a "rather confused impression" as he was questioned by investigators, authorities said.
He had a 10-centimeter (4-inch) survival knife tucked into his belt when he was caught at about 5 a.m. near the scene of the attack by the Grafing Bahnhof station, near Munich, they said.
One man died in a hospital after the apparently random attack and three other men were being treated for their wounds.
The suspect's name wasn't released in line with German privacy laws, but authorities said he is a German citizen with a traditional German name.
The man, a former carpenter who had been unemployed for two years, admitted to the crime, said Ken Heidenreich, spokesman for the Munich prosecutor's office in charge of the case.
But Heidenreich said that there were questions about whether the man can be held criminally responsible and that authorities were evaluating whether he should be taken to a mental hospital. [...]
