A gunman suspected of carrying out a terrorist shooting in Munich was an 18-year-old German-Iranian man, police chief Hubertus Andrae said Friday, adding that the motive for the crime is not known.
There are no other suspects in the shooting in which nine people were killed and at least 21 other people were injured.
The attack took place at the Olympia shopping centre about 5 kilometres north-west of the city centre.
The shooter's body was found about 1 kilometre away from the shopping centre. A red rucksack found near the body was being examined for explosives, police said.
The shooting prompted a series of evacuations of public places, suspension of public transportation and a widespread state of panic across the southern German city.
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.
