Footage from the scene appeared to show people running away to seek shelter – and there are local reports that some civilians are still trapped inside the shopping centre.
A witness live-streaming from the mall said: “(The gunman) ran into the underground station. Police are looking for him. I don’t have a description of the shooter.
“I don’t know how many are dead – some people say it’s about 15 people.”
Munich Police says a “large police operation” is under way and a wide area around the complex has been cordoned off.
An official at the shopping centre said: “We are experiencing a problem.”
