German media reported 10-15 people were injured by an axeman on train near Wurzburg, Germany late Monday.

Police reported to local media the suspect was shot. Media also report a helicopter is on the scene and an active police investigation is underway. The train line between Wurzburg and Ochsenfurt is now closed.

The motivations of the attacker are not known, but do come just days after the deadly attacks in France that killed 85.

In 2014, a terrorist inspired by the Islamic State attacked four NYPD officers with an Axe.
