German police say a patient fatally shot a doctor before killing himself on Tuesday at the Benjamin Franklin campus of the Charite university hospital in Berlin.
Police told Reuters that there were “no signs at all” of a link with Islamic militancy. The incident took place in the jaw surgery area of an outpatient clinic in Berlin’s southwestern district of Steglitz. The patient pulled out a gun while the doctor was treating him.
“In the course of the consultation, the patient pulled out a gun and fired several shots at the doctor. The attacker then directly turned the gun on himself and died as a result of the shots,” spokesman for Berlin police Winfrid Wenzel told Reuters.
Investigators are currently trying to determine the motive for the shooting.
