A shooting at a shopping mall in Munich has left at least eight people dead and multiple people injured, the Munich police say.

Police said that based on witness testimony, they were acting on the assumption that there were at least three attackers. No suspect has been taken into custody, and police are searching the entire city for suspects, NPR’s Esme Nicholson reports.

NPR’s Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson says it’s not clear what motivated the attack.

A spokesman for the police says officers are investigating a ninth body near the shopping center that they believe is connected to the attack, but they have not confirmed if it is the body of a perpetrator or victim. They say they are continuing to actively look for suspects.
