LATEST UPDATE: Police have revealed the gunman who killed nine people and injured at least 20 others at a Munich shopping mall is an 18-year-old German of Iranian (MUSLIM) descent.
CNN The unidentified gunman was an 18-year-old German-Iranian who had lived in Munich for more than two years, Chief Hubertus Andrae told reporters.
At least nine people were killed and 21 others hurt Friday in a shooting rampage at a busy shopping district in Munich, Germany, police said. Police searched for attackers, found a man who had killed himself and concluded he was the only gunman, the police chief said.
No group has claimed responsibility and police have not provided a motive. Authorities said children were among the casualties.
Reports now speculating that the attacks could be from right wing extremists against the flood of Muslim migrants. Perhaps it is a civil war in Germany, as many have been predicting since Angela Merkel decided to flood the country with Muslim invaders, rapists, jihadists, and freeloaders…a never-ending plague.
Then again, CNN is reporting that witness reports the Munich shooter was shouting “Allahu Akbar!” and was targeting children.
