Germany shooting sees six dead, several injured

Six people were killed and another two wounded in a shooting in the town of Rot am See in Germany's south-west, police say.A man called police shortly after 12.45pm on Friday and told them he had killed several people, regional police chief Reiner Moeller said at a news conference.

Police kept the man on the line and, when they arrived at the scene several minutes later, arrested a 26-year-old German national as the suspect in the slayings, Mr Moeller said. Officers found the bodies of six people — three women and three men, ages 36 to 69 — in and behind a building where a bar is located.

Another two people were hurt, and one of them has life-threatening injuries, Mr Moeller said. The suspect also threatened two children, ages 12 and 14. The suspect had a licence to own firearms as a shooting club member, Mr Moeller said. Authorities believe he used a semi-automatic pistol.
