Shots Fired in Munich Shopping Center

1043484071

… from Sputnik News,  Moscow

Update – Actual footage of one shooter below

“An eyewitness told German media that one of the attackers, outfitted with military-style boots, screamed “Scheib Auslander,” German for “F**king Migrants.”

Also, a video posted on social media shows a suspect on the roof of the mall shooting and saying “I am a German,” according to German newspaper Abendzeitun-Muenchen.”

[ Editor’s Note: This is a moving story that we will be updating, as two shooters are still at large at this posting time. The statement below about no link to Islamic terrorism is a just a preliminary one, meaning the information on the shooters is way too sparse to be tagging any particular group. We will know soon enough.

Shooter in door takes aim

This coming on the heels of the axe killings on the train could be the start of a string of copycat attacks, something that ISIS has been calling on its sleeper agents to do, as they are all considered cannon fodder to be used that way.

The mall was said to be frequented by a lot of immigrants which means this might have been a local thug terror attack on random immigrants. One shooter opens up here. You can freeze frame if and do a screen grab as I am about to do.

A completely unarmed Germany is a sitting duck for these kinds of attacks. In many communities, even seeing a policeman is a rarity, and an armed one, more so. How many bodies will it take to be piled up before the Germans realize that self defense starts with having something to defend yourself with, and it’s called a gunJim W. Dean ]

The shooting took place at the Olympia-Einkaufszentrum shopping mall in the Moosach district of Munich, Germany. Police have confirmed at least six deaths and multiple people are injured. There are reportedly three gunman who are currently on the run. One of the gunman has committed suicide, according to German newspaper Bilde.

Police say there is no apparent link between the shooting and Islamic terrorism.

There are also reports of shooting at a second location. Germany TV channel ARD reports that the city’s main train station is being evacuated at this time. The public transport agency reports that all subways, buses, and trams in the city have been suspended for the time being.

A state of emergency has been declared in Munich, with special operations underway. The anti-terror special unit of the federal police has been deployed to the city. Border patrol helicopters have also been rerouted to join in the manhunt.

German police have warned that the suspects are still on the run and have advised citizens to avoid public areas. According to Bavarian broadcaster BR, police are also asking people to avoid highways near the city.

Police are carrying out a major operation near the shopping center, the Bild newspaper reported. According to the Abendzeitung Muenchen newspaper, the police were notified of the events at 15:52 GMT.

Police at Olympia Park Station in Munich told Sputnik they did not have any information on the victims.

“We are receiving calls confirming that there were shooting in the shopping mall but we don’t have information on victims,” the police said.

“There are several shooters, it is not just one person. Shooting is still going on outside, but not inside the mall, they are gone, we are searching for them,” Olympia Park Station police said.

Munich police are currently conducting a major operation in the vicinity of the shopping center where the shooting took place, and requests citizens to avoid that area.

The attack occurs as German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere is on holiday in the United States. He has not yet commented on the incident.

Residents are tweeting #offenetur, German for “open door,” for anyone seeking shelter. Facebook has activated its Safety Check feature.

Germany authorities have been on high alert since the axe attack onboard a train in Bavaria on Monday.

    Allegedly filmed by Richard Gutjahr who also filmed the Nice shooting, (((coincidence))). His wife, Knesset member, Einat Wilf both getting bonus points here. And where is the muzzle flash in front of the Mickey D’s performance?

  3. paul becke  July 23, 2016 at 5:49 am

    But…. but….., according to Sputniknews, a little earlier, it wasn’t Muslim-related. Must have be a coincidence, the photographers and all… an infelicitous serendipity. Or serendipitous infelicity, as the case may be.

    • Edward Longshanks  July 23, 2016 at 6:30 am

      Yes, you are right. It is mentioned german-iranian, but we do not know what that means. The German political administration tries to avoid every kind of negative news by the impact of the muslim culture.

    • paul becke  July 23, 2016 at 8:28 am

      Actually, having checked just now, they said there didn’t seem to be a connection with ‘Daesh’. But then Daesh think Islam is coterminous with themselves. In view of the photographers, it was at least a gesture, though hardly an exoneration..

    At the moment it is officially 1 murderer, 9 dead and 16 wounded.
    Dear Mr. Dean, the response is not to wear a gun. The problem is a curltural one. There is an old joke in Germany, a Turk here without a knife in his pocket is not a real Turk. In the case to be guilty for the last war or a holocaust the Germans are guilty forever, and pay collectively for it, anyway we were born at this time or not. In the case of foreign criminals the story is bigott. We are not allowed to blame all for the action of one.
    If our muslim friends have to leave the country, anyway they are born here, then we will have no problems with muslims anymore and do not need guns or knifes. The discussion is, how many immigrants are allowed to enter the country, but it becomes tabooed to talk about the possebility to send people away from us. we need a reservation for us and our culture.

      Over 2 million Americans defend themselves from a violent crime each year, with many killing their assailant. Our media hides this statistic from their heavy coverage on “gun violence”, because it would undermine the position they have chosen to project on the public. We know here at VT as we are always following the ABC rule of intelligence analysis, using the dual track of looking at what is in front of you for clues, plus…looking for what is not there, that should be, showing that someone went to the trouble to hide it. We run into “investigators” all the time for which this is a totally new concept, despite its being course 101 Intel analysis, the rigging of a crime scene, salting or seeding it, a very very common thing either for setting up a patsy or removing an important clue that leads to themselves.

    • Edward Longshanks  July 23, 2016 at 6:26 am

      I believe you immediatly. This is your history. Somewhere on a small farm in the West only the self-protection was available. I understand this very well. But you know, opportunity makes thieves. The US people do not live at a frontier anymore, except Wyoming or comparable states. The education, which is, i admitt, a thin varnish of civilisation, is the way how to learn a civilized way of a living together. The money to achieve it, is limited. So, uncontrolled immigration, is a poison for a peaceful society. And the Mexican indio culture, for example, is full of violence. It is their heritage. It is ok in Mexico, but not the right one for the US. The reason is simple. Mexico is no superpower, but the US and insofar a dangerous circumstance.

      Mall shootings will always have a lot of security camera footage.

    • LC  July 23, 2016 at 2:53 pm

      In this case they were probably all switched off in advance of events just like dozens of Penta-Con cameras had been switched off on 9/11/01!!!!
      Just for SECURITY reasons mind you!!!!

  6. Trakkath  July 22, 2016 at 4:51 pm

    Better stay focused on EU and German politicians, this is just a distraction from what is really going on behind the scene. They want to install martial law like in France.

  7. Leno  July 22, 2016 at 1:54 pm

    Aloha Snackbar! And when you smile for the camera, I know I’ll love you better…

  8. Raptor  July 22, 2016 at 1:49 pm

    One of the shooters has shot themselves dead. One shooter yelling anti migrant slurs…….seems the locals may be taking matters into their own hands but that doesn’t explain eating a bullet.

    One shooter looked to be a lefty.

    • Trakkath  July 22, 2016 at 7:23 pm

      That is what they want to tell you, that locals take things in their own hand. But germans are disarmed since 2000 so none can defend himself or strike this way.
      And this “lone Wolf” doesn´t look like a german anyway.
      It is the same BS like in all other false flags by the usual suspects to ignite civil war.
