German police have confirmed that at least 25 people have been reported injured after a gunman opened fire at a cinema in Viernheim, Frankfurt before the attacker was gunned down by the police.
According to local authorities the masked assailant who was heavily armed entered the cinema around 3 pm local time and opened fire at people seeing a movie at the cinema housed in a major shopping centre which attracts 20,000 visitors daily.
“We don’t know who the shooter is or what kind of weapons he has, but the possibility this could be a terror attack is crossing the minds of people here in Germany,” CNN’s Atika Shubert reported from Berlin.
It’s not clear how many of the injured were shot, and how many may have been hurt in other ways.
