A pregnant German woman was killed by a machete-wielding man outside a bus station in Reutlingen, Germany, on Sunday.

The suspect, a 21-year-old Syrian refugee, also injured two other people before he was taken into custody by local authorities.

German police said the man was known to them and had been involved in other violent attacks in the past, but he was not thought to have ties to any terrorist groups.

“There is no evidence that this was religious or terrorist-motivated,” said a police official.

Witnesses to the murder said the suspect was having a heated argument with the woman before he killed her with a machete or long knife. He then reportedly ran onto a busy street and attacked another woman in a car and a man at a nearby cafe. Neither victim suffered life-threatening injuries.

He was stopped when a man driving a BMW ran him over. Police arrested the killer.
