    An armed man wearing a mask is reported to have opened fire at a cinema complex in western Germany.

    German media report that at least 20 people have been injured, many reportedly as the result of a release of tear gas in the attack at the Kinopolis complex in Viernheim, near Frankfurt.

    They say the gunman is inside the complex and surrounded by armed police, who have sealed off the area.

    It is unclear whether he is alone or if he has taken hostages.

    Sounds like suicide by cop.

    Yes it does. This story is a fine example of the chaos that attends a breaking story. First is was "shots were heard" and "50 people injured", then it was "20 people injured by tear gas", then it was "don't know if the weapon was real or if shots were fired".
