The gunman who killed nine people in Munich was a student obsessed with mass shootings and had no known links to the Islamic State group, German police say. Police who searched his room found newspaper clippings on attacks including an article entitled "Why do students kill?", police told reporters. The killer, who was born in Munich, had a 9mm Glock pistol and 300 bullets.
Police are investigating whether he may have lured his victims through a Facebook invitation to a restaurant.
He is suspected of using a fake account under a girl's name to invite people to the McDonald's restaurant where he launched his attack.
