Reports: Gunman in Germany not named "Arif Uka," but "Arid Uka"

According to new reports from AP, the gunman who shot several soldiers in Frankfurt, Germany was not named "Arif Uka," but "Arid" Uka.  This means that most of the reporting of the last five hours, at least of the gunman's name, was wrong.

Yahoo! Reports:
In Mitrovica, family members said the suspect's name was spelled "Arid" not "Arif," saying that he was born and educated in Germany where his family moved some 40 years ago. 
Uncle Rexhep Uka said the suspect's grandfather was a religious leader at a mosque in a village near Mitrovica. 
Rexhep's son, Behxhet, said he spoke to the alleged gunman's father, Murat Uka, several times by telephone from Frankfurt after the family had been contacted by Kosovo police, who told them that they only thing he knew was that his son did not come home from work on Wednesday.
