German police said Saturday a gunman who went on a shooting rampage at a busy mall in Munich likely acted alone, and then committed suicide after killing nine people in cold blood.
The shooter was an 18-year-old German-Iranian man whose motive was “completely unclear”.
The third attack on civilians in Europe in barely a week saw panicked shoppers fleeing the Olympia (OEZ) mall as elite police launched a massive operation to track down what had initially been thought to be up to three assailants.
Nine people were killed in the shooting that began early Friday evening, with 21 injured according to the latest official toll. Here are images from Munich’s night of fear.
