Munich: Police Say the Shooter Was "German-Iranian"
Munich police chief Hubertus Andraes says the suspect in the Munich shooting is an 18-year-old German-Iranian from Munich.
Andraes said at a news conference that the attacker's motive was still "fully unclear."
Andraes said that the body of the shooter found about 2 1/2 hours after the attack was determined to be the shooter based on the evaluation of witness statements and closed circuit television.
Two others who fled the area quickly were investigated but had "nothing to do with the incident"
Munich police spokesman Peter Beck says 10 people were killed, including the likely attacker, in the shooting in the Bavarian capital.
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 a gunman opened fire in a crowded shopping mall and at a nearby McDonalds.
