Cologne (Germany), Oct 15 (IANS) The German police on Monday arrested a man after he took a woman hostage at a pharmacy inside Cologne city’s central railway station leading to a lock-down for several hours.

Authorities said the suspect sustained life-threatening injuries after the police fired shots while storming the pharmacy, reports said.

The railway station was on lock-down for several hours on Monday following the hostage situation. The area in and around the station — a major transport hub for rail traffic across Germany and western Europe — was cordoned off, according to the BBC.

The police refused to comment whether the incident was terror-related.

Authorities later said that the situation was “under control” and the teenager, who was taken hostage, was receiving treatment for minor injuries.
