Berlin: Several people were severely injured in a fatal shooting in Berlin on Saturday. According to initial reports, the incident took place in a gateway on Stresemannstrasse, close to the offices of the center-left Social Democratic Party (SPD). The incident happened a day after a parked car exploded in the US city of Nashville, damaging several buildings and injured three others.
German media claimed that at least four people have been injured in a shooting. Authorities said that one of the victims, who had jumped in a nearby canal while avoiding the shooting, has been pulled out.
Tightening the security, several armed policemen and fire brigade teams have been deployed at the scene.
Police said that unidentified assailants quickly fled the spot and the reason behind the attack is yet to be known.
