According to initial investigation, the 53-year-old man shot at the two victims at the plant but he was arrested without any resistance, the Stuttgart public prosecutor's office and Ludwigsburg police headquarters said in a joint statement.
The all-clear was given around one hour after police and rescue workers arrived at the premises. "There is no longer any danger to employees at the plant," police tweeted.
The factory building had been evacuated and "employees are currently being cared for by the police and the company's own support staff," said local authorities.
