A ninth body has been found just over half a mile from a shopping centre where gunmen opened fire, killing at least eight people, a police spokesman has confirmed.

German radio station Bayerischer Rundfunk reported that the dead man was wearing a red backpack, similar to that seen on one of the attackers who opened fire at McDonald's at the Olympia centre. A robot was reportedly investigating the bag.

Staff still hiding inside Munich shopping centre

Employees are still hiding inside the mall

Workers have said they are still hiding inside a Munich shopping centre after a shooting in the building.

One employee reported that "many shots were fired" during the incident and he saw one person lying on the ground with serious injuries.

Many shots were fired, I can't say how many but it's been a lot.

All the people from outside came streaming into the store and I only saw one person on the ground who was so severely injured that he definitely didn't survive. We have no further information, we're just staying in the back in the storage rooms. No police have approached us yet.
