Police and prosecutors said he had faced allegations of threats, property damage and fraud in 2015 and 2016, all of which were dropped.

Authorities have searched the four apartments and multiple cars the attacker had looking for clues, Muenster police boss Hajo Kuhlisch said Sunday.

Police said it was too early to speculate about the motive behind the crash and say they are still investigating.

After smashing into crowds of people, Mr Handeln is believed to have shot himself dead.

The Sueddeutsche Zeitung said the man had psychological problems.
