At least nine people have been killed one of whom appears to be the gunman, according to local police and at least 10 injured in a shooting in Munich. Police have referred to the incident as a suspected terror attack.
An 18-year-old gunman who apparently acted alone has opened fire in a busy shopping mall in Munich, killing at least nine people in the third attack against civilians in Western Europe in eight days.
The busy street is plunged into chaos when a man wearing a cap and sunglasses opens fire with what appears to be a handgun outsidetheMcDonalds.
The attack started shortly before 6 p.m. at a McDonald’s across the street from the mall, which was filled with people doing their weekend shopping. As dozens of shots rang out, terrified shoppers ran from the scene, some carrying babies and pushing strollers.
The gunman was a German-Iranian from Munich who had been living in the city for more than two years, Munich Police President Hubertus Andrae said.
