A man shot and killed two people near the town of Ansbach in northern Bavaria, and the suspect is under arrest, German police said on Friday.
The gunman shot a woman from his silver Mercedes convertible in Leutershausen-Tiefenthal and later shot a cyclist in nearby Rammersdorf, police in southern Germany said.
The man also appears to have shot at two other people, a farmer and another motorist, but they were unhurt, police said.
Local media reported that the suspect was detained at a petrol station in Bad Windsheim, several kilometers to the north of Ansbach.
