The incident took place at a clinic at Charité University’s Benjamin Franklin campus, located in the Steglitz district, in the city’s southwest.

Berlin’s police department has released a statement saying the doctor is critically injured and currently being treated in an intensive care unit.

There are unconfirmed reports from Bild that the doctor is a senior dental surgeon. 

The shooting took place at around 11:00 GMT. An anti-terrorist unit is at the scene, and the main building has been evacuated, according to the Bild newspaper.
