At least three people have been injured after a car drove into pedestrians a square in the middle of German city of Heidelberg.
The man was shot after being tracked down by officers.
Police spokeswoman Anne Baas said one of the three people struck outside a bakery on Saturday afternoon was seriously injured.
The suspect fled and was then found by a police patrol, and was shot by an officer following a short stand-off.
He was taken to a hospital.
There was no immediate word on the man’s possible motives.
