Multiple deaths reported following shooting rampage at Shopping Centre In Munich, Germany. The Olympia-Einkaufszentrum shopping centre in the northern part of Munich is not far from the city’s Olympic Stadium in the Moosach district of the Bavarian capital. Police are responding to the reported attack in large numbers. Munich police are urging people to avoid public places. “The situation is still unclear,” they said on Twitter.
A police spokeswoman says they believe more than one shooter is involved in the attack at the Olympia-Einkaufszentrum mall – and warned no one has been taken into custody yet.
There are unconfirmed reports of a second shooting at the Stachus metro station in Munich city centre.
The shooting is the second attack in Germany in less than a week. On Monday, a 17-year-old Afghan wounded four people in an axe and knife attack on a regional train near the Bavarian city of Wuerzburg, and another woman outside as he fled. All survived, although one man from the train remains in life-threatening condition. The attacker was shot and killed by police. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the train attack, but authorities have said the teen likely acted alone.
