BREAKING: Munich Under Attack, City in Lockdown, Reports of Multiple Gunmen in Multiple Locations, Police: "Shelter in Place - Do Not Share Live Video on Social Media"

I'm closing out this post. There doesn't seem to be any point in further "updates," especially when so many of them appear to be contradictory or have later turned out to be misleading or false. There is of course no dispute that many were killed or injured, including children.  

4:11 PM CST: I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest, based on the evidence, that there was only one gunman, who started his rampage at McDonald's and then moved to the mall where he subsequently shot himself. He appears to have been motivated by anti-refugee hatred, though there are also those conflicting reports that he shouted "Allahu Akbar!"


There now appears to be NO evidence of shootings at other locations.

Reports are completely conflicting in the identity/motivation of the attacker(s).

CNN reports a shooter yelled "Allahu Akbar!" Daily Mirror and other sources report “f***ing foreigners, I am German!"

German media reporting a/the gunman shot himself.

Police activities now underway in multiple locations across the city.

With Dallas in mind, I assume it's still possible there is only one gunman moving from location to location. But officials say they are seeking three gunmen.

It should also be noted that this is the fifth anniversary of the anti-Islam Anders Behring Breivik mass shooting in Norway. One report had a shooter yelling anti-refugee slogans.

Public transportation in Munich has been completely shut down.

Highways to the north of Munich have been sealed off.

Nine confirmed dead (one is probably the shooter).

The first reported shooting was in the Olympia Shopping Mall, next to Olympic Stadium.

The first video below appears to show a man opening fire in front of a McDonald's at the mall.

The second seems to show a gunman on the roof of the mall.  

From the Daily Telegraph (1:22 PM CST):
Munich shopping centre shooting: 'Three gunmen on the run' say police as multiple deaths reported across the city 
Munich police are hunting for three gunmen who they believe have carried out attacks at three locations in the city. 
On Twitter, the local forces said shootings had taken place at Hanauer Straße, then the Riesstraße, and also at the Olympia shopping center. 
Lynn Stein, who works inside the Olympia centre, told CNN a woman told her "masked gunmen dressed in black" had been seen running through the centre.
The interior ministry confirming at least three killed. 
Germany's Muencher Abendzeitung reported that the death toll was higher, with up to 15 people killed in the incident at the Olympia Einkaufszentrum shopping centre. 
Police told another paper, the Sueddeutsche Zeitung, that there were multiple deaths. 
"There is a major police operation under way in the shopping centre," Munich police said on Twitter, without elaborating. 
An employee inside the shopping centre told the Reuters news agency "many shots were fired".


  1. God have mercy on the dead and help the wounded.
    God also help the West to understand this is the new reality and the political "leaders" are to blame for it.

  2. Why Nationalism is evil:

    The Munich shooter is Muslim Ali Sonboly he is obsessed with Nationalism & Norway Mass Murder Anders Behring Breivik He lured victims to McDonalds using Facebook account!
