A patient shot a doctor before committing suicide at a Berlin hospital on Tuesday, police said, adding there was no sign the incident was a terrorist attack.
A police spokeswoman told AFP that several shots were fired at a university hospital in the well-heeled southwestern Steglitz neighbourhood of the German capital.
"According to preliminary information, a patient at the hospital shot a doctor and then killed himself," she said.
"The doctor is in intensive care," the spokeswoman said, adding there was "no indication this was a terror attack".
The incident follows four other attacks in Germany since July 18 that have left 10 people dead and dozens injured.
