"I am German and I hate foreigners," shouted mysterious Munich mall shooter during the carnage
MUNICH - An 18-year old youth on Friday opened fire on bystanders in a crowded shopping mall in Germany, killing at least 9 and injuring a further 16, according to Munich police. Little is known about the motivations and affiliations of the mysterious young attacker, who appears to have acted alone and killed himself after spreading the carnage, aside from the fact that he shouted, "I am German and I hate foreigners," during the attack.
According to police chief Hubertus Andrae, the gunman started shooting at a McDonald's across from the Olympia mall around 5:50 p.m. (11:50 a.m. ET).
The carnage came on the fifth anniversary of right-wing fanatic Anders Behring Breivik’s massacre in Norway that killed 77 people.
