A gunman suspected of carrying out a terrorist shooting in Munich killed nine people before shooting himself, police said Friday.
There are no other suspects in the shooting, which injured at least 21 other people.
The shooting took place at the Olympia shopping centre about 5 kilometres north-west of the city centre. It resulted in a series of evacuations of public places, suspension of public transportation and a widespread state of panic across the southern German city.
The shooter's body was found about 1 kilometre away from the shopping centre. A red rucksack found on the body was being examined for explosives, police said.
Munich authorities now say that people can leave their homes after an earlier warning to take cover. They say public transportation in the city was up and running again.
