Carn man killed after violent rampage in Germany 25.06.14

A TROUBLED Inishowen man who was killed on a German motorway is suspected of earlier stabbing three people.
Enda McLaughlin, 27, from Glentogher, Carndonagh is reported to have been hit by a car in the early hours of Monday as police pursued him.
Interpol yesterday informed Gardaí that an Irishman had died in Germany.
The Carn man, who has been in and out of the Donegal court system since his teenage years, had travelled by taxi from the Dutch city of Heerlen to Aachen in Germany.
It is alleged he stabbed the driver when he reached his destination before fleeing the scene. It is also alleged that he demanded money from a German national, before stabbing him. It is understood he hailed another taxi to bring him to Cologne and when he disembarked he went on to allegedly stab a third person, a truck driver. McLaughlin reportedly then ran across the motorway and was knocked down and killed. All three stab victims were treated in hospital.
The Glentogher man had a litany of previous convictions since his teenage years, including assault.
