German cops have confirmed that ‘several people’ were wounded during the terrifying shooting.

“A handgun was used during a police operation at S-Bahn station Unterfoehring. At least one person injured,” police tweeted, referring to a northeastern suburb of the Bavarian city.

Police spokesman Michael Riehlein said that the incident occurred Tuesday morning when police were carrying out a check at the Unterfoehring subway station.

He says during the inspection a weapon was fired but could not immediately say whether it was fired by police or by a suspect.

Riehlein says there is no danger to the wider public.

Bavarian Radio reported: “According to police information it is probably not a terrorist attack”
