German Police: Mall Shooting Spree, 6 Dead

German Mall Shooting

From CNN…
A police operation is underway after gunfire erupted Friday at a shopping center in Munich, Germany. The shooting “looks like a terror attack,” a police representative said, and at least three attackers remain on the loose.

At least six people were killed in the shooting spree, police said. Authorities shut down public transportation and warned people to stay home or seek protection.

Here’s what we know so far:

Shooting broke out at a McDonald’s across from the Olympia shopping mall around 5:50 p.m. (11:50 a.m. ET), police spokeswoman Claudia Küntzel said. Gunfire also broke out inside the mall, witnesses said.

On Facebook, police said gunfire was reported in several locations, and that witnesses report seeing three people with firearms.

“The manhunt is underway at high speed,” police said. “Because of the unclear situation we ask all people in the city area to stay at home or to look for protection in any nearby building. The operation of public transportation service has been stopped.”

    How very sad. And not to politicize, but this occurred in a country with strict gun control laws. Praying for the families who lost a loved one.

      Strict gun laws are exactly why Germany is much safer when it comes to gun violence. For every one million citizens, Germany has 1.9 homicides per year, the US lead the world with 29.7. Or, simply put, the gun murder rate in the US is fifteen times that of Germany.
      Gun control works.
