German police Friday arrested a man suspected of fatally shooting a man and a woman from his car in the Bavarian town of Ansbach, the Associated Press (AP) reported. The motive behind the attack is not yet known.

Authorities apprehended a suspect after launching a manhunt for the suspect who reportedly escaped in a silver Mercedes Cabrio. The two victims of Friday's incident were an 82-year-old woman and a cyclist, BBC reported.

The gunman was tackled by workers at a gas station in Bad Windsheim, about 20 miles from the crime scene. The workers, who were threatened by the man with a gun, tied him up, before informing police, AP reported, citing Nuernberger Zeitung, a local newspaper.

Initial reports said several people had been killed in the attack. A farmer and a motorist were also shot at or threatened by the gunman after he fled the first crime scene, local police reportedly said, in a statement.

Ansbach is the capital of the administrative region of Middle Franconia in the state of Bavaria.

This is a developing story.
