Germany has been hit with a bloody and murderous assault by an evil individual yet again, this time in Munich, just days after an Afghan refugee assaulted numerous people on a train with an axe and knife.
Associated Press reported that a frantic manhunt was underway in the Moosach district of the city near the Olympic park and stadium for at least one and possibly multiple shooters.
Authorities believed there were likely several people dead and many more wounded from the vicious and unprovoked attack.
The incident was believed to have begun outside of a McDonald’s restaurant, where a gunman opened fire on pedestrians before moving into the nearby Olympia Einkaufszentrum mall.

Authorities have also cordoned off the area to conduct a search for those responsible for the attack, including shutting down public transport in the area, and urged citizens to stay out of the public while they hunted down the murderer(s).
The U.K. Daily Mail has also reported on a second shooting at a subway station some 10 blocks from the Olympic park area, though it remained unclear whether that shooting was connected or an entirely separate incident.
It is worth pointing out that Germany has rather strict gun laws, and the area where the shooting occurred was most certainly a “gun free zone,” meaning the citizens in the area were unarmed and at the mercy of the gunman they faced and forced to wait for armed police officers to arrive to save them.
Also worth noting is the fact that, just over a week ago, in the immediate wake of the terrible truck attack in Nice, France, on Bastille Day, retired Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn intimated on Fox News that he expected a terrorist attack to occur in Germany in the very near future.

It would appear for the moment that Flynn was somewhat prescient in that prediction, though he did mention Berlin and not Munich.
We will certainly keep you updated on the situation as it continues to unfold and more information is released.
Please share this on Facebook and Twitter to spread the word that there has been a tragic mass shooting incident in Munich that may or may not be related to radical Islamic terrorism.
