Munich Terrorist Linked To Neo-Nazi Mass Murderer

The BBC reports:

The gunman who killed nine people in Munich was obsessed with mass shootings and had an obvious link to Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik [photo], German police say. Police who searched the 18-year-old’s room say they found written material on attacks.

The gunman, who later killed himself, had a 9mm Glock pistol and 300 bullets. Police are investigating whether he may have lured his victims through a Facebook invitation to a restaurant.

He is suspected of using a fake account under a girl’s name to invite people to the McDonald’s restaurant where he launched his attack. Seven of the dead were teenagers. Three victims were from Kosovo, three from Turkey and one from Greece. Police say the gunman had been in psychiatric care, receiving treatment for depression.

The Munich attack took place on the five-year anniversary of the day that 77 people were killed by Brevik, whose manifesto quoted US anti-Islam activist Pam Geller.
