A man who killed two people after he drove a van into a crowd in Germany before taking his own life was already known to police.

Armed police cordoned off a wide area around the scene of the attack Saturday, urging residents to avoid the city center to allow investigators to get to work amid initial fears the country had suffered an extremist assault.

The vehicle, a grey VW van, crashed into pedestrians at the Kiepenkerl restaurant in Munster's main square on Saturday, as the city experienced an unusual flux of visitors due to high temperatures.

German police said Sunday that they have no reason to believe the man who rammed his van into a crowd in Muenster, Germany, Saturday had any accomplices.

"We wish strength and fortitude to those who lost their loved ones and a speedy recovery to those injured by the heinous attack perpetrated in Muenster, Germany", The Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

German news agency dpa reported that police confirmed arrests in connection with the half-marathon but gave no further details.

"You will understand that with four apartments - two in eastern Germany, two in Muenster - we can't now say conclusively that we won't find anything", he said.

Police made the closures because they were investigating a suspicious object found in the van, the AP reports.

The daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung said police had found an 18-page missive in his Pirna home in which he wrote of his anguish due to serious problems with his parents, "repeated nervous breakdowns" and "explosions of aggression" as well as a botched medical operation.
