He has mental health problems of course, and it was only a botched robbery. Thankfully no one was physically hurt. From the Daily Mail and the Daily Star

A gunman has opened fire in a Spanish supermarket shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’.

The attack was a botched robbery at the Mercadona supermarket in the neighborhood of As Lagoas, in Ourense. An armed man entered the shop and fired several shots into the air while shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ around 2.20pm local time.Police said he carried gasoline and gunpowder in his pockets.

According to police sources, the young man has psychological problems and is lives next-door to the shop.

The incident, which happened at around 2pm, did not result in any injuries but left many extremely shaken.

One employee confirmed that he had shouted the Arabic phrase for ‘God is great’ before he began shooting. 

Policeman Carlos Perez said: “He fired on me.” But the guy stopped shooting when he saw the officer’s weapon. “I had the impression that he ran out of ammunition,” the officer added.

The man has since been arrested.
