Anja Werner said the men were on the run after a second shooting incident was reported in Landsberg, but there is no confirmation that the incidents were linked.
Reports suggest the suspects fled from the scene in Halle in a different vehicle before hijacking another in Landsberg. Footage and photos circulating on social media show a person who appears to be one of the shooters kitted out in dark combat-style clothing.Also on rt.com One person detained after shooting outside German synagogue left 2 people dead
Police confirmed earlier that one person had been detained after the shooting but warned people to stay inside while the situation is ongoing. It is not clear exactly how many suspects police are searching for.
