Police say "no evidence" of links to the Islamic State group found
The mayor of Munich has declared a day of mourning for the victims of Friday's shooting in the Bavarian capital.
At least 9 people became victims of 18-year-old German-Iranian gunman, who was born and raised in Munich.
The pistol-wielding attacker was later found dead of a suspected self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Authorities said it was too early to say whether it was a terrorist attack but that the shooter was believed to have staged the attack alone, opening fire in a fast food restaurant before moving to the mall.
Munich police chief Hubertus Andrae said "no evidence" of links to the Islamic State group had been found in the home and room of the suspect.
Andrae also told a news conference that the crime and the perpetrator had "absolutely no" link to the issue of refugees.
