Munich shooting : Gunman had been in psychiatric care and had no criminal record 

The German police on Saturday said there was no indication of a political motivation behind the Friday night’s deadly shooting attack at Munich’s Olympia-Einkaufszentrum shopping mall. The talk is about a “classic shooting rampage” that has no political motivation, a Munich police spokesperson told a press conference on Saturday. At least nine people were killed and 27 others wounded in the attack, committed by a demented 18-year old German-Iranian, who also shot himself dead.

There were “no evidence” of links to any terrorist group found in the gunman’s home, the spokesman said, and described the tragedy as a “classic shooting rampage,” and “killing spree.” Since, the authorities are assuming there is no political motivation behind the attack, so the terrorism investigation is being shut down, he said.
