The attack happened in Illerkirchberg, a town of around 5,000 people west of Munich.

A suspect had fled into a nearby building, Wolfgang Juergens, police spokesman in the nearby city of Ulm, told local broadcaster SWR.

People inside the building were taken into custody, he said.

He did not confirm how many people had been found or whether any were the alleged attacker.

Police are yet to say if they suspect a motive for the attack.
