Footage has emerged of people scrambling from the scene of a shooting at a shopping centre in Germany this evening.

The worrying footage captures shoppers running from the scene of the deadly attack.

The Olympia Einkaufszentrum shopping centre was targeted, but police have not given details about casualties.

It has been widely reported that one person was killed in the attack.

German media say multiple people are injured.

The shooting is the second attack in Germany in less than a week.

On Monday, a 17-year-old Afghan wounded four people in an axe and knife attack on a regional train near the Bavarian city of Wuerzburg, and another woman outside as he fled.

All survived, although one man from the train remains in life-threatening condition. The attacker was shot and killed by police.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the train attack, but authorities have said the teen likely acted alone.
