Munich gunman was ‘obsessed with mass shootings’


CEBU CITY – A man obsessed with mass shootings.

This was the description given by authorities on Saturday (July 23) on the 18-year-old gunman who opened fire outside a fast food outlet in Munich, Germany, killing at least nine people and wounding 16 others.

But the gunman, David Ali Sonboly, was also among the fatalities after he shot himself after the shooting spree.

Munich police chief Hubertus Andrae said they searched the unnamed German-Iranian’s home and found literature about mass killings.

Munich prosecutor Thomas Steinkraus-Koch said investigators found evidence that the gunman had suffered from psychological problems and received treatment.
