Munich is in lockdown after a gunman opened fire at a shopping centre, killing at least nine people and injuring several others, amid police warnings that one or more attackers may be on the loose in the city. Live Munich shooting: police hunt continues as death toll rises to nine. The violence began just before 6pm, when a man opened fire at a branch of McDonald’s outside the Olympia shopping centre, police said. Video apparently shot outside the restaurant and shared on social media showed passersby fleeing in terror as a man holding a pistol calmly and indiscriminately opened fire. Police warned people in the Bavarian state capital to stay away from public places, amid fears that one or more armed people might still be on the run. Unconfirmed reports of shootings in at least three other places sparked panic across Munich.
