Munich shooter

The gunman who killed nine people in Munich was obsessed with mass shootings and had no known links to the Islamic State group, Munich prosecutor Thomas Steinkraus-Koch said Saturday.

Friday evening’s attack at the Olympia shopping mall also left 27 people injured, including children. Ten of the 27 people injured have serious injuries, Police Chief Hubertus Andrae also told journalists Saturday.

Police who searched his room found newspaper clippings on attacks including an article entitled “Why do students kill?”, police told reporters.

The killer, who was from Munich, was armed with a 9mm Glock pistol.

Video has emerged appearing to show the gunman who shot dead at least nine people in Munich involved a furious argument with a witness, shouting “I am German!” and complaining of being bullied.

In the footage, which was posted on Twitter, an unseen man can be heard shouting abuse at another man, who is clad all in black and pacing on the top floor of an empty car park.
