A German-Iranian Teenager Was Behind Munich Shopping Center Mass Shooting


Police in Munich have said that the suspect in the shopping mall shootings is an 18-year-old German-Iranian national. The teenager had been living in Munich for some time and acted alone, before killing himself.
Nine victims are dead, including “adolescents”, police say. Twenty people remain injured, including three people who have life-threatening injuries.
Police say “the motive or explanation for this crime is completely unclear”.
Earlier, shooting began at about 18:00 (16:00 GMT) on Friday. Witnesses said the attacker opened fire on members of the public in Hanauer Street, near a branch of McDonald’s, before he moved to the nearby Olympia shopping centre.
Some 2,300 police officers were deployed and a manhunt was launched, as the Bavarian capital’s transport system was suspended and the central railway station was evacuated.
The body of the suspect was found about 1km (0.6 miles) from the Olympia shopping centre in the north-western suburb of Moosach.
