At least two dead in suspected drive-by shooting

A man has been arrested following this morning’s shooting, near Ansbach, Germany.

GERMAN POLICE SAY they have captured a man who allegedly shot and killed two people in Bavaria and then fled by car.

Police spokeswoman Simone Wiesenberg told N-TV television that the shooter had been arrested but provided no other details.

Earlier, spokesman Bert Rauenbusch told N24 news that a man and a woman had been killed in the morning attack.

Rauenbusch says a man shot at people from his car and that at least one other person was wounded.

The man subsequently fled but was captured by police at a petrol station in the town of Bad Windsheim.

The shootings themselves took place in the southern town of Ansbach, near Nuremberg.
