The German public said that 25 people were injured, but it is not clear whether they were shot or suffered other injuries. After the attacker was disarmed, a police spokesman said no one was injured in the shelling.
The U.S. Embassy in Germany said that the police have used tear gas, which could cause some injury to the hostages, said the press Secretary Jackie Mackean. At some point, the assailant took hostages, but it is unclear why.
