Six family members have been shot dead in a German bar this afternoon by a gunman who they knew.  

Aalen police said a gunman opened fire in the building shortly after midday in the southwestern town of Rot am See, Baden-Wuerttemberg, 105 miles northwest of Munich.

Germany newspaper Bild reports the victims were all members of the same family and were killed by a 37-year-old male in the bar. 

Police confirmed that several other people have been injured and that the suspect has been arrested.

Police spokesman Rudolf Biehlmaier said: 'According to my information, there were six dead and several injured.

'We are working on the assumption that this was a single attacker. In any case, we have no information on further suspects.' 

Initial information suggests the victims and the suspect knew each other and there is no indication more suspects were involved.

A second police spokesman Holger Binert aid: 'We have arrested a suspect,' adding that initial information suggested the suspect and one or more of the victims knew each other. 

Mass shootings are a comparatively rare occurrence in Germany, although in October a far-right attacker shot two people dead in eastern city Halle after trying to get into a packed synagogue with home-made weapons.
