Likely sole gunman in Munich attack was German-Iranian - police chief

BERLIN (Reuters) - The likely sole gunman in a deadly shooting in Munich was an 18-year-old German-Iranian who had both German and Iranian citizenship, Munich Police Chief Hubertus Andrae told reporters on Saturday.

He said the motive for the shooting was not clear, and despite earlier reports, there was no sign of any additional shooters involved in the incident.

The gunman killed nine people, including some youths, before apparently killing himself, Andrae said. Sixteen people were injured in the attack, including three who were in life-threatening condition and several children.
