Three pedestrians were injured when a man drove his car into pedestrians in a central square on Saturday evening. One of the three people who were hit was seriously injured, police spokeswoman Anne Baas said.

The knife-wielding driver attempted an escape. He was intercepted by a police patrol and shot by an officer following a brief standoff. He was seriously injured and brought to a local hospital. The man’s motives and background are still unknown. 

In a interview with broadcaster n-tv, police spokesman Norbert Schaetzle said that the man was believed to be carrying a knife during his stand-off with police. Schaetzle did not confirm whether the man was mentally disturbed, but said that that the perpetrator likely acted alone and that a terrorist background seemed unlikely.
