BERLIN — One person died and several were injured late Friday in a shooting near a popular Berlin event location, rescuers said.

Three of the injured had made their own way to hospital, a spokesman for the fire department said.

Heavily armed police were seen around the Tempodrom hall, which was cordoned off. Police were looking for several suspects.

Visitors at an event taking place at Tempodrom were escorted out of side and back exits, as police searched the area.

Police said they could not yet provide information about the background of the crime. A Turkish comedy show was taking place at the Tempodrom on Friday night. It was not clear if there was any connection to the shooting.
