Police in the German city of Munich have asked members of the public to submit any videos, photos or audio recordings from Friday's mass shooting, BBC reports.

Nine people were killed and 16 wounded, three of them critically, at a shopping mall by a lone gunman who later shot himself dead nearby, police say.

No motive for the German-Iranian man's actions has yet been established.

The attack is the third on civilians in western Europe in eight days, following the violence in Nice and Wuerzburg.

Police will give an update on their investigation later on Saturday. They are asking people to upload any recordings that could help them to a special account.

Special forces have reportedly searched the killer's home in the Munich district of Maxvorstadt.

Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere has given orders for flags to be flown at half-mast across Germany in mourning for the dead.

Chancellor Angela Merkel has delayed a holiday in the Alps to chair a meeting of the national security council later on Saturday.
