BERLIN (AP) – A Munich police spokeswoman says there are “several dead and wounded” in a shooting at a mall in the Bavarian capital, and police are still hunting down the suspect or suspects.
Munich police are urging residents to stay home or seek safety indoors. In a statement, they say “the suspects are still on the run. Please avoid public places.” They urge people not to post tweets or post photos of police operations in the city.
Public broadcaster Bayrischer Rundfunk reports that the late afternoon attack happened at a McDonald’s restaurant at the mall in the northern part of Munich.
Armin Fritz, a reporter for public radio B5, says the city’s entire public transport system has been shut down as police search for the attacker or attackers.
It’s the second attack in Germany in less than a week.
