Munich Shooting kills number of people at the mall in Germany

The Munich shooting has left several people dead and advise has been given to people to avoid public places.

A big security operation is under way at the Olympia shopping centre in the north-western Moosach district.
Shop workers have been unable to leave the building. There is no information about a possible motive for the attack.
The police Facebook page quoted eyewitnesses as saying they had seen three attackers carrying guns.
Police are now describing it as "an acute terror situation".

Public transport has been suspended as the extensive security operation continues. The city's central railway station has been evacuated.

People stranded by the emergency and unable to get home are being offered shelter by locals. The initiative was launched with the Twitter hashtag #Offentür(open door).
Police helicopters are flying over the city and special forces are involved in the massive police deployment.
