>> The man who drove a camper van into a group of people sitting outside a restaurant in the German city of Munster on Saturday was known to police. That's according to the city's senior public prosecutor. Speaking on Sunday, she said the perpetrator had several previous criminal charges.>> The perpetrator was known to police, we've had three criminal proceedings against him in Munster, and elsewhere there is one more.
There are accusations from 2015 and 2016.>> The man who has yet to be officially identified killed two people after he plowed the vehicle into tables outside the eatery. He then shot himself dead. The regional interior minister says he acted alone and appears to have had mental health problems.
That comes as officials say there's no indication that the attack was politically motivated, but that the investigation was still in its early stages. Local media say police are searching the man's apartment and that he had contact with far right extremists. But they say there's no evidence thus far that he was a far right extremist himself.
