Two people died and some 30 others were injured Saturday when a delivery van plowed into a crowd of outdoor diners in a western German city, authorities said.
The incident occurred in Muenster, near the Kiepenkerl statue, around 3:30 p.m., the BBC reported.
Police said the van’s driver shot himself to death.
The incident is being treated as a deliberate attack by police but the Germany newspaper Suddeutsche reported the incident is likely not a terrorist one, citing security sources. The driver, who was born in 1969, was believed to be a German citizen with a history of mental health issues, the newspaper reported.
