Terrorism ruled out in Munich shooting

The city of Munich

MUNICH, Feb 21 (Reuters) – Two men were shot dead in the southern German city of Munich on Thursday but there were no indications that it was a terrorist attack, a police spokesman said.

Germany has been on high alert since December 2016, when a Tunisian asylum seeker with Islamist links hijacked a truck, killed the driver and then ploughed it into a crowded market place in Berlin, killing 11 more people and injuring dozens.

Police spokesman Sven Mueller said one of the two dead men had fired the shots, adding that nobody else appeared to have been hurt in the incident.

“There is no danger for people there anymore,” Mueller said.

Local residents had reported the shots being fired at a construction site on Thursday morning.
