Berlin: Shots were fired by an unidentified motorcyclist on the Hertha Berlin team bus, the German Bundesliga team`s manager Michael Preetz confirmed on Sunday.
Only the driver was in the bus at the time and was not injured in the incident which came ahead of the team`s German Cup match on Monday at second-division Bielefeld in the North Rhine-Westphalia region of western Germany.
"Our driver was going from the hotel to the train station at Bielefeld to collect the team. An unidentified person on a motorbike fired at the bus," said Preetz, adding that "the type of firearm used has not yet been determined".
The club posted a photo on Twitter showing the bus with the impact of a bullet which smashed a hole in the windscreen at the level of the driver`s head.
Bielefeld police told SID, an AFP subsidiary, that an investigation was underway.
