At least one has been arrested but German police believe others fled in a car

The Bild and Mitteldeutsche Zeitung newspapers reported the shooting took place near a synagogue.

Twitch quickly released a statement after it was discovered the the gunman was using the streaming service during the attack.

"The suspected perpetrators fled in a auto", said police on Twitter, urging residents in the area to stay indoors. Investigators said one suspect was arrested but warned to "still stay alert". They gave no information about that person.

The attacker is believed to be a 27-year-old German man with an extreme-right background, security sources told dpa.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the terrorist attack against the Halle synagogue "is another manifestation of antisemitism in Europe".

Two people have been killed and two more severely injured in a shooting in the German city of Halle, in what has been described by officials as an antisemitic attack. Twitch said it would permanently suspend any account found to be posting or reposting "content of this abhorrent act".

Wednesday's attack followed attacks in the United States over the past year on synagogues in Pittsburgh and Poway, California.

AC Milan coach Giampaolo sacked after just seven games
However, a dire display in the home derby against Inter, where Milan were soundly beaten 2-0 saw the pressure rise on Giampaolo. AC Milan have sacked coach Marco Giampaolo after just seven games in charge, the Serie A club said on Tuesday.

Regional public broadcaster MDR broadcast images of a man in combat clothing firing shots along a street from behind a auto.

It was not immediately clear whether there were other assailants. Wednesday is the Jewish holy day of Yom Kippur. Police and witnesses say shots were fired in multiple locations, including outside a synagogue and near a Jewish cemetery. "The whole thing lasted perhaps five to 10 minutes".

Rifat Tekin, who worked at the kebab outlet, said he was making a kebab for two construction workers when a perpetrator threw an explosive at the restaurant before shooting. Witnesses also said a gunman wearing military gear shot and killed a male inside a Turkish kebab shop after throwing a stun grenade that ricocheted off the door frame. "I think there were five or six of us in there", Roessler told n-tv television. "The man behind me probably died". I heard another loud bang outside, screaming but I don't know what it was. A police tweet several hours later said that people can now go back out into the streets, and that officers are still out in force.

Another shooting was reported in the nearby town of Landsberg, but it has not been confirmed if the two are linked.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel's government voiced outrage over the attack on Yom Kippur and urged tougher action against anti-Semitic violence.

"We have a deployment in Halle", the native police stated on Twitter.
