A man has shot and killed two people in the southern German region of Bavaria, and fired at two others before being captured by police.

The man, whose identity has not been released, shot a woman from his locally registered Mercedes in the town of Tiefenthal, near Ansbach, police said in a statement.

The woman died at the scene and the man fled in his car, then shot and killed a man on a bicycle in the nearby town of Rammersdorf, according to police.

The suspect also shot at a pedestrian and the driver of another vehicle, but hit neither, police said.

He was apprehended a short time later, police spokeswoman Simone Wiesenberg told n-tv television.
