    Shots have been fired at a shopping centre in Munich this afternoon, resulting in multiple deaths.

    A major police operation has begun in the German city, according to local media reports.

    People were seen running from the shopping mall to get away from the incident after hearing gunshots.

    The area around the Munich Olympia Shopping Centre in the district of Moosach has been sealed off as emergency services try to control the situation.

    One picture on social media shows a man lying on the ground with a blanket over him.

    On a Friday afternoon, after 3 o'clock.
    Let's hope that this is someone else.
    Might make a nice changer for a change.

    I am soooo sick and tired of this!

    The Muencher Abendzeitung newspaper is reporting that up to 15 people have been killed in the shooting, while the German NTV says 10 people have possibly died.

    A witness live-streaming from outside the mall said: "(The gunman) ran into the underground station. Police are looking for him. I don't have a description of the shooter."

    :(

    My Mum is 80, paralyzed and has difficulty speaking. I went across to her house this afternoon, she was watching the news and she managed to say "nobody injured today" I said "huh?" She meant no terror attacks, or mass shootings or LE officers being shot, stories on the news.

    Almost Mum, almost. Sad, scary times
