Video: First Picture of Ali David Sonboly Munich Attacker Who Was Mentally Sick
Iranian-German killer, 18, Ali David Sonboly, 18, killed nine people – six men and three women – during his murderous rampage Olympia Shopping Centre in Munich. Police confirmed that Sonboly had 300 rounds of ammunition in his bag while he shot at people in the city.
He had documents about spree shootings in his room at his parents’ flat where he lived, two miles from the scene. The teenager used a Glock 17 semi-automatic handgun to kill the victims – who were aged between 13 and 45.
And during a press conference today, Munich police chief Hubertus Andrae confirmed left-handed Sonboly – whose father works as a taxi driver – had no links to ISIS.
He described him as a ‘classical shooter without any political motivation’ and added that he committed suicide as he was not shot by police.
It also emerged that the teenager received ‘psychological treatment’ and was interested in mass shootings after files were found at his parents’ home, which was two miles from the scene.
He also filed the serial number from the gun and police officers who raided his parents’ apartment also found the killer had several first-person shooter games on his computer.
Police today confirmed that the teenager – whose mother works in German department store Karstadt – hacked a young woman’s Facebook account in a bid to lure children to their deaths with a promise of free food from McDonald’s.
In the post, he urged youngsters to gather at the specific restaurant yesterday afternoon to take advantage of the special offer.
At around 4.50pm, the black-clad shooter burst from the toilets in the restaurant and began ‘killing the children’ with a pistol, witnesses said.
He then continued his bloody spree in a local shopping centre and on the streets around Munich’s Olympic quarter.
A number of ‘adolescents’ were among the dead and several ‘children’ were injured, Mr Andrae said late last night.
He confirmed the attacker had dual nationality and had lived in Germany for some time – at least two years, possibly much longer.
Last night German commandos raided the home the attacker shared with his parents in the suburb of Maxvorstadt. Locals there described him as a ‘quiet guy’.
