German police said there was no sign of a link between the shooting and terrorism
A doctor has died after being shot at a hospital in Berlin - reportedly by a patient who then turned the gun on himself.
The gunfire erupted at around 1pm on Tuesday at the Benjamin Franklin campus of the Charite university hospital in the German capital.
A spokesman for police told the AFP news agency: "According to preliminary information, a patient at the hospital shot a doctor and then killed himself."
The male doctor later died.
German police said there was no sign of a link between the shooting and terrorism, and there was no suggestion of other suspects.
The attacker and the doctor have not been named by officials.
It comes after a series of attacks in German cities in the last week which have prompted calls for stricter gun laws in the country.
On 18 July, four passengers on a train and a passer-by were wounded in an axe attack in Wuerzurg.
On Sunday, a suspected suicide bomber killed himself and injured 12 others outside a wine bar in the city of Ansbach.
On the same day, a 21-year-old Syrian refugee was arrested in Reutlingen after a pregnant woman was killed with a machete.
And on Friday, 18-year-old German-Iranian teenager David Ali Sonboly killed nine people during a gun rampage in a Munich shopping centre.
