A man shot dead a doctor on Tuesday before killing himself at a Berlin hospital, German officials said.
The shooting occurred around 1 p.m. (1100 GMT) at the mouth, jaw and face surgery unit of the Benjamin-Franklin Hospital in the city’s southwestern district of Steglitz.
Berlin police initially said the doctor had suffered life-threatening injuries, but later said he had died.
The circumstances of the shooting are still being investigated.
Police said there was no indication of a “terrorist background” to the attack.
A series of attacks over the past days, including the shooting deaths of nine people and a gunman in Munich on Friday, have prompted officials to call for stricter gun laws in Germany.
