Berlin (dpa) - A man suspected of shooting and injuring several people in a German cinema has been shot dead by police, according to the Hesse Interior Ministry.
The heavily armed and masked man entered the cinema complex in the south-western German town of Viernheim near Frankfurt at about 3 pm (1400 GMT) and then barricaded himself inside, the FAZ newspaper and other media reported.
Police sources told the newspaper that several people had been wounded, but it was unclear whether the man had held hostages.
The complex has been cordoned off and a special police commando is on the way to the scene by helicopter, a spokesman for the Frankfurt police said.
