"That's where he loaded his weapon," said Lauretta, who only wanted to be identified by her first name. She said she saw many children casualties.
........ 
"I hear like an alarm and boom, boom, boom...and he's still killing the children. The children were sitting to eat. They can't run." Lauretta said she heard the gunman say, "Allahu Akbar," or "God is great" in Arabic.
........
"I know this because I'm Muslim. I hear this and I only cry," she said....

While police did not identify the shooter, they said it was an 18-year-old German-Iranian who had lived in Munich for at least two years....

After the shooting, the gunman moved across the street to the mall, which is near the site of the 1972 Summer Olympics where Israeli athletes were killed by Palestinian attackers.
Lynn Stein, who works in the mall, described a chaotic scene when gunfire erupted.

"People were very confused, and they were running and they were screaming," she said. She saw someone lying on the floor of a store who appeared to be either dead or injured."...

7/22/16, "Did Munich killer Ali Sonboly lure children to their deaths on Facebook? Police probe fake ad for free food at massacre McDonald's where Iranian, 18, killed first of his nine victims before turning gun on himself," Daily Mail, by Anthony Joseph and Patrick Lion and Alan Hall In Berlin For Mailonline


"An 18-year-old German-Iranian man who complained he had been bullied killed nine people then himself during a gun rampage through Munich yesterday, with police probing claims he lured some of his young victims to their deaths with a promise of free McDonald's food.

A fake Facebook page reportedly told youngsters to gather in a specific fast food restaurant yesterday afternoon for the special offer. At around 5:50pm, Ali Sonboly burst from the restaurant's toilets 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, Munich Police President Hubertus 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 described him as a 'quiet guy'.

The attack paralysed the southern German city, bringing renewed fears of terrorism to mainland Europe just a week after the Nice atrocity....

Witnesses in McDonald's described hearing yesterday's attacker shouting 'Allahu Akbar', or 'God is Great', a cry used by Islamist terrorists during previous attacks. And ISIS supporters took to social media in the hours after yesterday's atrocity to celebrate the killings.  

Three people remain critically ill this morning following the attack, with 16 others receiving medical treatment. In total, 21 people were hurt....

One witness, named only as Loretta, told how she had been in the McDonald's with her son when the shooting started. She told CNN: 'I come out of the toilet and I hear, like an alarm, boom, boom, boom. He's killing the children. The children were sitting to eat. They can't run.'

Loretta said she had been in the restrooms at the same time as the shooter, with her eight-year-old son. As he started shooting, he yelled 'Allahu Akbar', she said....

The gunman claimed to have been born in Munich and brought up in a tough working class area on benefits. He ends the discussion by firing a shot towards those taunting him, sending them diving for cover....

Another eyewitness told the magazine that she saw children among the dead....Neighbours of the attacker told German media that he was a 'quiet guy.'"...
