'Several people' wounded in shooting at a Munich train station

“Several people” have been wounded in a shooting at a suburban Munich train station on Tuesday morning — but police said the incident was not terror-related.

Associated Press reported a number of injuries, including to a 26-year-old female police officer, who is said to be “seriously” wounded. Citing local police, AP added that the suspect was also injured and is now in custody.

The shooting occurred during a morning police check at the Unterföhring rail station, Munich police spokesman Michael Riehlein said. It is thought that the suspect stole a police service weapon and opened fire.

Bavarian public radio broadcaster BR posted this video from the scene on Tuesday morning.

Reuters said BR is reporting that the incident was not a terrorist attack. There was “no political or religious motive,” police have reportedly told media: “There is no danger to the public.”

The Unterföhring station was cordoned off.
