BERLIN (AP) - German police say shots have been fired at a subway station in a suburb of Munich.

Munich police spokesman Michael Riehlein told The Associated Press that the incident occurred Tuesday morning when police were carrying out a check at the Unterfoehring subway station.

He says during the check a weapon was fired but could not immediately say whether it was fired by police or by a suspect.

He says he had no immediate reports of injuries but that ambulances were being sent to the scene.

Riehlein says there is no danger to the wider public.
