Horndiplomat-Munich, Germany – Several people have been shot dead in a shooting at a shopping centre in the German city of Munich, police say.
A big operation is under way. Police are telling people to stay at home and avoid the streets.
Several people have also been injured at the shopping centre in the north-western Moosach district.
Reports speak of one or more attackers. Some shopworkers are reportedly unable to leave the building.
There is no information about a possible motive for the attack.
The security forces have been on alert after a teenage migrant stabbed and injured five people on a train in Bavaria on Monday.
The authorities had warned of the danger of further attacks.
A man working at a local petrol station told the BBC: “We see just ambulances and it’s like firemen and police but all this area is evacuated, all the streets.
“Now [there] are no cars just on the side of the streets. All of the streets are blocked. I see that the people are scared. Everybody are running around.”
Public transport is said to have been suspended as the security operation continues.
NTV reports that special forces are at the scene. The city’s central station has been evacuated.
Munich police said they did not know where “the perpetrators” were. “Look after yourselves and avoid public places”.
