A German police officer was critically wounded and two passers-by hurt when a lone gunman fired shots at a commuter rail station near the southern German city of Munich on Tuesday before being injured himself and detained, police said. A Munich police spokesman, Marcus da Gloria Martins, told reporters there was no indication of a “political or religious” motive behind the incident during the morning rush hour.

“The sole male perpetrator was motivated by personal reasons,” he said. Police identified the gunman as a 37-year-old German national but said no information was available on whether he had a criminal record. Martins said the man had tried to push at least one police officer in front of an incoming train at an S-Bahn station in Unterfoehring, a northeastern suburb of the Bavarian city. (AFP)
