VIENNA (AP) – German police say a shooting in a discotheque has claimed two lives, including that of the gunman, and wounded four people, three of them seriously.
A tweet by police in the town of Konstanz in southwestern Baden-Wurttemberg state says one person was killed and three were seriously wounded in the early-morning shooting.
A subsequent exchange of fire on the street with the gunman left a policeman with non-life-threatening wounds and the gunman in critical condition. The gunman died later in the hospital.
The dpa news agency says police believe the 37-year-old suspect appears to have been acting alone. They have not established a motive for the shooting.
This story has been corrected to say that the police officer was wounded in an exchange of fire with the gunman.
