Six people killed in shooting in south-west Germany

Six people have been killed and several injured in a shooting in the south-western German town of Rot am See, police have said.

A suspect has been arrested and no further suspects are believed to be at large, police from the nearby town of Aalen said.

“According to my information, there were six dead and several injured,” police spokesman Rudolf Biehlmaier told German broadcaster n-tv. “We are working on the assumption that this was a single attacker,” he said.

Biehlmaier said the initial information suggested the suspect, a German citizen, and one or more of the victims knew each other. Some of the victims belonged to the same family, he added.

Rot am See is located 84 miles south-east of Frankfurt, close to the medieval town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber.
