Berlin hospital shooting: Patient shoots and kills doctor before turning gun on himself

Police are investigating after a patient shot and killed a doctor before turning the gun on himself at a hospital in Berlin, Germany.

German police said the doctor later died of their injuries, adding no one else was injured and saying they had no indications there were other perpetrators.

Shots were reported around 1pm local time at the Benjamin Franklin campus of the Charite university hospital in the southwestern neighbourhood of Steglitz.

There were "no signs at all" the shooting was linked to terrorism, police said.

A spokeswoman for the Benjamin Franklin campus of the Charite university hospital had no immediate comment
.The shooting follows four other attacks in Germany since 18 July that have left 10 people dead and dozens injured.

A 17-year-old Afghan injured four people in an axe attack on a train in Wuerzburg on 18 July.

On Friday, an 18 year-old German-Iranian "obsessed with mass shootings" killed nine people and injured 26 in a shooting spree at a shopping centre in Munich.

On Sunday, a suspected suicide bomber blew himself up and injured 15 other people outside a crowded music festival.

Earlier that day, a Syrian refugee killed a pregnant woman and injured two others in a machete attack near Stuttgart
