A teenager arrested in connection with the deadly Munich shooting may have known about the attack before it happened, officials have said.

The 16-year-old Afghan appeared to have met with the gunman at the mall where the shooting took place before the attack and knew he had a pistol, police said.

Investigators said the two teenagers met last year as in-patients at a psychiatric ward, with both being treated for online game addictions, among other things.

A spokesman for the German Interior Ministry said there could be a link between video games and the shooting and that there should be a discussion about "violent" video games.
