A man has reportedly shot several people at a club house outside of the southern German city of Heidelberg. Police said he was involved in an argument at a meeting of property owners.
At least two people died in a shooting on Tuesday night in Dossenheim, less than 10 miles north of Heidelberg.
Police said a man opened fire on several people at a restaurant on the grounds of the town's local sports club, killing two people and then himself. At least five people were wounded.
"It's still unclear what the exact background, motives and sequences of events were," police spokesperson Tobias Keilbach told news agency DPA soon after the incident. Later reports suggested that the man was involved in an argument at a meeting of property owners, was thrown out, and later returned with a handgun.
The first emergency dispatches went through to police at 7 p.m. local time (1700GMT). Around 20 people were present at the time of the incident.

Germany's U19s have won the European Championship in Hungary, but after the seniors' 2014 World Cup win, this youth level triumph is far from surprising. Could it mark a sustained cycle of German success?
The German athletics federation has excluded the Paralympic champion Markus Rehm from its team for the upcoming European Championships. Rehm says he may contest the decision.
