    Shooter supposedly looks white, supposedly was screaming "fucking foreigners" and similar things. Coincidentally it's the anniversary of Anders Breivik's attack.

    No police confirmation of deaths. Local news media reports 6 dead, 10+ injured.

    I'm sure there is some statistic out there concluding otherwise but 2016 has had a lot of such violent incidents thus far and we are only 7 months in! RIP...

    Supposedly a translated audio of a piece of conversation went something like this:

    Bystander 1: "Why are you doing this???"

    Bystander 2: "(expletive deleted) foreigner!"

    Gunman: "I am German"

    ----

    Now I understand this could be a Muslim jackass doing this or even a white nationalist jackass going around killing foreigners but police keep insisting there are 3 of them and that one of them was intentionally aiming at kids.

    The information on this one is more disjointed than most...

    - Police has just confirmed 8 dead (50 seconds ago)
    - All highways around Munich are being cleared from traffic.
    - Roadblocks at all streets leaving town
    - all public transport in the city - including taxis - have ceased operation
    - local clinics have dozens of trauma teams on standby; all medical personnel is being recalled.
    - GSG9 deployed, as well as somewhere around 10,000 police officers
    - all "other shootings" as well as a gunman committing suicide reported by media has been confirmed as false rumours by police

    - Police in neighboring state Baden-Württemberg is on full alert with active patrols of all cities (although in my opinion the thunderstorm going on here is more pressing)
    - other German states have placed police on alert
    - Czech Republic has posted police at malls and increased border patrols
    - The Munich federal parliament representative of the rightwing CSU is calling for military, all other German parties are flipping them the finger and pointing at the constitution

    At this point,with the current intel I'd say it's a lunatic.Not islamist,not right winger.

    I'd say it's pretty well-planned as a terrorist attack, with some thinking behind it. After all, terrorism isn't about killing people. It's about instilling fear. And having those one to three armed people at large in the city definitely is all about that.

    Police reports that no hints or witness accounts so far point towards an islamist background. No allahu akbar or anything like that.

    Listening to some witness accounts right now.

    Could be recce by fire,ISIS style.Even if it's not them,precious lessons about the mobilization of German security has and will be learned.
    France has started like this,with low casualties attacks.

    Police is investigating 9th body found as possible gunman involved in attack.

    Edit: 9th body is someone who killed himself, body found near mall. "Il y a aussi un suicidant. On éprouve la complicité." *

    Edit 2: Suspicion is due to body being male with red backpack, as has been described by witnesses and seen shooting in a number of amateur videos taken during the attack. Body and backpack apparently first being checked for possible explosives. Police assumes three suspects due to having plenty witness accounts claiming thus.

    * Munich police twitter feed is alternating between German, English, French,Turkish and occasionally Spanish. Getting a bit hard to follow.
