Six 'family members' have been killed and two more people injured in a mass shooting at a German hotel this afternoon.
The shooter opened fire at the building shortly after midday in the southwestern town of Rot am See, Baden-Wuerttemberg, 105 miles northwest of Munich.
Heavily armed cops were scrambled to the scene and the suspected gunman was arrested. There are reports that the 26-year-old German man may have had a 'personal motive'.
Germany news site Spiegel Online reports the victims were all members of the same family attending a gathering.
It is understood the gunman had a licence to carry a firearm and called the police himself after carrying out his slaughter spree. He was arrested ten minutes later just before 1pm.
