26 July 2016, 17:04
Berlin - German police say a patient has apparently shot at a doctor, before turning the gun on himself at the Benjamin Franklin University Hospital in Berlin.
Police tweeted that the doctor is in intensive care after being “critically injured”.
"The doctor is in intensive care," a police spokesperson told AFP, adding there was "no indication this was a terror attack".
AP reported that shots were fired around 13:00 local time in the Steglitz district, southwest Berlin.
The hospital itself did not immediately want to comment on the incident.
A series of attacks over the past days, including the shooting of deaths of nine people and a gunman in Munich on Friday, have prompted officials to call for stricter gun laws in Germany.
