At least eight people were killed, and five injured after a double shooting in Hanau, near Frankfurt, late on Wednesday.
One suspect has reportedly been arrested but police are still searching for further people thought to be involved in the attacks, which took place at two shisha bars in the west German town.
Footage shows special police units with dogs and dozens of paramedics at the second shooting site.
Gunmen reportedly opened fire outside one shisha bar in the town’s Heumarkt district and drove off to a second location in the Kesselstadt district where they opened fire again.
Investigations are ongoing and the motive behind the attacks remains unclear.
