A German police officer has shot a knife-wielding Austrian man who went on the rampage in Berlin Cathedral on Sunday afternoon.
The 53-year-old man was shot in the leg, Berlin police said.
A police officer was also injured in the incident and taken to a nearby hospital.
Police said there was no indication of any terrorist motive.
About 100 people were in the building at the time of the incident, around 16:00 local time (14:00 GMT).
Police said they had been alerted by an emergency call from an employee at the cathedral.
A police statement urged people to “avoid speculation” and said more details of the incident would follow.
Witnesses quoted in German media said the man appeared to be in a “confused” state.
