A German man has been arrested after an elderly woman and a cyclist were shot dead near the town of Ansbach, police have said.
The suspect fired at them from his car, killing both at the scene, in what officials said were random killings.
He was later detained after being overpowered by workers at a petrol station where he is alleged to have stopped and threatened staff.
The suspected attacker has been identified only as Bernd G, 47.
Initial reports said the suspect was an 18-year-old.
His motive is unclear, and he is undergoing psychiatric assessment.
