One person was killed and three others were injured Tuesday morning when a knife-wielding man attacked people indiscriminately at a commuter rail station outside Munich, Germany.

The attack happened in Grafing, about 20 miles east of Munich, shortly before 5 a.m. (11 p.m. ET Monday). The Munich newspaper Merkur reported that the attacker, carrying a four-inch knife, stabbed one man on a train, a second man in the station forecourt and two other men who were passing by on bikes.

Investigators told the Suddeutsche Zeiting newspaper that witnesses had reported that the attacker had shouted “Allahu Akbar!”, the Arabic phrase meaning “God is Great!” during the assault. Merkur reported that the suspect had yelled, “You infidels!”, among other statements.

Despite reports of the man’s shouts, German authorities reportedly said they did not have any evidence linking the man to ISIS. The man is believed to have mental health and drug problems.
