    A 21-year-old man armed with a machete killed a woman and wounded two other individuals near a kebab shop in the southwestern German town of Reutlingen, Bild.de reported Sunday. Police said the attacker is a Syrian asylum seeker, his motives are unclear.

    ​The attacker was arrested by police. A police spokesman said he has a criminal record of being involved in incidents causing injuries to other people.

    "According to information currently available there is no cause for claiming the incident was a terror attack," police said in a statement.

    ​The reasons of the attack are still unclear. The police said the tragedy was preceded by a quarrel.

    ​Germany has been on high alert following a deadly Friday shooting when an 18-year-old man killed nine in Munich.
