    Local media report a huge police presence in town, with the centre on lockdown and a helicopter hovering overhead. 

    Specialist SEK commando units are now on scene and looking for the attacker, officers added. 

    Germany was hit by a shopping centre shooting rampage in Munich in 2016 when attacker David Ali Sonboly shot dead nine people.

    At least 35 people were also wounded during the attack, which began at a McDonald's franchise and ended with the gunman turning his 9mm Glock pistol on himself.
