Newscast Media MÜNCHEN—Gunmen went on a shooting rampage in a shopping mall in the southern German city of Munich on Friday, killing at least six people, police said.

Authorities were evacuating people from the Olympia mall but many others were hiding inside. A Munich police spokeswoman said multiple people were killed or wounded.

"We believe we are dealing with a shooting rampage," the spokeswoman said.

More than one gunman was believed to be involved and no one had been arrested, she said. NTV television reported that German police special forces had arrived at the scene of crime.

It was not immediately clear who carried out the attack, which took place a week after an ax-wielding teenager went on a rampage on a German train. Islamic State claimed responsibility for that attack.

Meanwhile, the White House issued a statement condemning the attacks.


"The United States condemns in the strongest terms the apparent terrorist attack that has claimed innocent lives in Munich, Germany. We still do not know all of the facts, but we do know that this heinous act has killed and injured multiple individuals in the heart of one of Europe’s most vibrant cities. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and loved ones of the deceased, just as we wish those wounded a full recovery. In the midst of this tragedy, the United States will work closely with our German partners to whom we will make available any resources that would assist their investigation, as the President pledged," the statement read in part.   

The White House also said that the United States, and the broader international community would   remain unshaken in the face of acts of despicable violence that are occurring.  Add Comments>>
