Germany train station shooting: Many injured in Munich attack, one person arrested

Several people were injured when an unidentified assailant opened fire at a train station in Munich, Germany.

A policewoman was also injured in the attack. The alleged attacker has, however, been arrested by police.

Authorities reported that a handgun was fired during a police operation at an S-Bahn station in Unterfoehring, a northeastern suburb of the Bavarian city, and that the scene was now secured.

The incident took place during a morning police check at the Unterfoehring subway station, according to Munich police spokesperson Michael Riehlein.

The spokesperson had no further details, but Munich's Merkur newspaper has reported that witnesses said the suspect took a police officer's pistol and shot her, and also injured others at the scene.
