Hubertus Andrae said more would become clear as the investigation continues.

Nine people were killed when a gunman - identified as an 18-year-old German-Iranian - opened fire at the Olympia shopping centre on Friday evening.

Mr Andrae said the motive for the attack was not yet clear.

The man then took his own life and was found in a side street near the centre. He was not previously known to police, the police chief added. He had both German and Iranian citizenship and had lived in Munich for more than two years.

Three people spotted fleeing the scene of the attack, who police initially believed had been responsible for the shooting, have been identified and were not involved.

Ninth body found near scene of Munich shooting attack

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.

The police spokesman added it was unclear whether the gunmen were still in the city or in the surrounding areas.

On Twitter, the force has confirmed it is investigating whether one of the dead may have been behind the shooting.
