10 deaths in shooting at Munich shopping center

-
Munich police spokesman Marcus Martins says a ninth body has been found at the site of a shooting attack in that German city and officers are "intensively examining" it to see if it may be one of the attackers. Another police spokesman, Peter Beck, says witnesses reported seeing three shooters with "long guns" who attacked a McDonald's in a city shopping mall. Beck also confirmed to The Associated Press that 10 people were killed, including the likely attacker, on Friday afternoon.
 
Beck says investigators also believe the shooter killed himself and appears to have acted alone.
   
Munich police gave a "cautious all clear" early Saturday morning, more than seven hours after someone fired gunshots in a crowded Olympia-Einkaufszentrum shopping mall and at a nearby McDonald's.
 
All city mass transit has been shut down during the police operation and police have strongly encouraged residents to stay indoors.

Another shooting was reported later on Friday night at the Marienplatz transit station, according to Sky News.

It's the second attack in Germany in less than a week. On Monday, a 17-year-old Afghan wounded four people in an ax-and-knife attack on a regional train near the Bavarian city of Wuerzburg, and another woman outside as he fled. All survived, although one man from the train remains in life-threatening condition. The attacker was shot and killed by police.
 
The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the train attack, but authorities have said the teen likely acted alone.
