AT LEAST eight people have been killed in a drive-by shooting in Germany tonight, it is reported.
The victims were gunned down in two attacks in the city of Hanau around 9pm UK time, German newspaper Bild reports.
Five other people are said to have been seriously injured in the bloodbath during shootings on two shisha bars in the Kesselstadt district.
Local news website Vorsprung Online reported that a gunman blasted at passers-by from a car.
Police said they are hunting “unknown offenders” and a “dark vehicle” was seen speeding away from the first shooting.
Another German news outlet Hessenschau says three people were shot dead when a city centre hookah bar was targeted.
Eyewitnesses reported hearing eight or nine gunshots and at least one victim lying on the floor.
The gunman is then said to have entered another shisha bar, where five more people were slaughtered, according to reports.
Photos showed a silver Mercedes covered in silver foil thought to have been damaged in one shooting outside the Arena Bar & Cafe.
Police and emergency services flooded the area, but no arrests are thought to have been made with the suspects on the loose.
Heavily armed police were on guard at the scene of tonight’s horror shootings.
Hanau is in the Main-Kinzig region about 12 miles east of Frankfurt and has about 100,000 inhabitants.
