Breaking - Armed man 'opens fire at German cinema'

A masked man with a gun and ammunition belt opened fire in a cinema complex in the small western German town of Viernheim, near Frankfurt and barricaded himself inside, German media have reported.

Bild daily and the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reported that elite police were on their way to the scene.

The Darmstaedter Echo said 20 to 50 people had been injured, though initial reports suggested the injuries may have been caused by tear gas.

Police were not immediately available to comment.
