MUNICH, July 22 (Reuters) - Germany's Muencher Abendzeitung reported that up to 15 people were killed in a shooting in a shopping mall in the southern city of Munich.
TV images showed dozens of emergency vehicles outside the mall.
The shopping center is next to the Munich Olympic stadium, where the Palestinian militant group Black September took 11 Israeli athletes hostage and eventually killed them during the 1972 Olympic Games.
Friday's attack took place a week after a 17-year-old asylum-seeker wounded passengers on a German train in an axe rampage claimed by Islamic State. Bavarian police shot dead the teenager after he wounded four people from Hong Kong on the train and injured a local resident while fleeing.
German Justice Minister Heiko Maas told Bild newspaper's Friday edition that there was "no reason to panic but it's clear that Germany remains a possible target".
The incidents in Germany follow an attack in Nice, France, on Bastille Day in which a Tunisian drove a truck into crowds, killing 84. Islamic State also claimed responsibility for that attack. (Reporting by Andrea Shalal, Editing by Robin Pomeroy and Angus MacSwan)

Given its proximity to the Welt, I'd imagine many EDers have been to that mall. I had lunch there last summer. Prayers for the victims of this. Stay safe, current ED folks.

Yes, very troubling. I walked from the Welt to the Apple Store in the mall in February; it's a 15 minute stroll.

Be safe.

What the hell is going on in this world?!?! Every where! This is just sickening. When will it stop?!?
I try to stay positive and optimistic, but when it seems like it is every other day, it becomes overwhelming. Stay safe everyone!

So sad. Haven't been on the boards in awhile, but immediately thought of any EDers that might be over there right now. Thoughts and prayers for everyone there, just terrible.

I saw some other reports that Marienplatz/City Center may be involved as well.

Ugh when will it stop? All this pointless violence for what? Hope current EDers are all safe. One member was in Nice recently during the attack last week.

It is a sad world that we live in today. Two days ago I was in an active shooter training class at work taught my a police officer. Who would of known that they give these kinds of trainings today?? Crazy. USA has the most reported cases of active shooters than any other country. These active shooting incidents are climbing at an alarming rate also.

The world has changed and I hope peace gets restored again.

I actually went to the very same Mcdonald's for breakfast when we did ED in 2013.
Prayer goes to the victims and their families.

We have our own report from our correspondent and European Editor in Munich in the story.

Americans in Munich who need help are being told to stay where they are and call the Consulate instead of going there. "Call +49-89-2888-0 for emergency help," officials said.

My personal opinion is that it will stop when someone decides to use magic. I heard that there is this spell Wizards use that can turn sand into the glass. It seems like there are no Wizards left with enough courage to use this spell anymore.
