Ali David Sonboly
Killer, shot dead 9 persons, wounded at least 35, (10 of them seriously) near Olympia trade centre, Munich. Eight of the nine people killed were aged between 14 and 20.
Sonboly had german- iranian citizenship and at least 2 years lived in Germany.
Thomas Steinkraus-Koch, a spokesman for the public prosecutor's office, said the 18-year-old German-Iranian, Ali David Sonboly, who was born and grew up in Munich, was a "classic mass shooter" who had been receiving psychiatric treatment for depression and appeared to have no political motive.
Hubertus Andrä, Munich's chief of police, said the man had acted alone and had "no connection to the theme of refugees" or to Islamic State.
There were conflicting accounts of the gunman’s background and motive in the immediate aftermath of the shooting, with some claiming Sonboly shouted “I am German” and made anti-immigrant comments and another eyewitness telling CNN she heard the shooter shout “Allahu Akbar” before shooting children in the face at the McDonald’s across the street from the mall.
Sonboly lived two miles from the shooting scene and used a Glock 17 semi-automatic handgun to carry out the attack. Police said he filed the serial number off the weapon, and he had 300 rounds of ammunition with him.
Today, as the fresh young faces of his victims started to emerge, Angela Merkel said Germany mourned 'with a heavy heart'. Seven of the nine he killed were teenagers and the youngest was just 13 years old.
