‘Not Terrorism’: Germany Says Munich Gunman Was Obsessed With Mass Shootings from Ayman's blog

1469210567611

German authorities said on Saturday that the 18-year-old German-Iranian who killed nine people in Munich before killing himself had no link to international terrorism.

The Interior Minister said that the young killer, who had been undergoing psychiatric care for depression, had “obvious links” to Norwegian Anders Breivik. Friday marked five years since Breivik killed 77 people, mainly young people, in Norway.

According to German police, the gunman had more than 300 rounds of ammunition.

Initial reports indicate that the gunman used Breivik’s photograph on WhatsApp. The gunman, who has not been named, may have lured his victims to the location of the shooting at the Shopping Center by using a fake account as a girl.

Seven of the gunman’s nine victims were teenagers, said police.

Video, allegedly of the gunman, shows him shouting that he is German during the attack leading some to assume that he may have been an anti-immigration extremist. However, this was later proven to be incorrect.

Ten people remain critically injured, including a 13-year-old boy. Terror incidents have been on the rise in 2016, with a number of attacks in Europe.
