A truly horrifying scene has unfolded in Munich, Germany today as terrorists opened fire and murdered at least 9 people with more wounded. Reports are still coming in, but today is just the latest in a string of terror attacks this summer that have devastated the Western world.
This has occurred just as the world was heading into a peaceful weekend after a long and busy week. There will be no peace this Friday night.
Daily News reports the details we have available for now:
A gunman shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ opened fire at children in McDonald’s before rampaging through a shopping mall, killing at least eight people.
Munich is in lockdown tonight, as a major police operation is ongoing around the city’s Olympic Park, with the force warning people to stay in their homes and avoid public spaces.
A ninth body has been found tonight and investigators are looking into the possibility of it being the attacker.
Donald Trump has responded on Twitter:
Another attack, this time in Germany. Many killed. God bless the people of Munich.

Thank you Donald for responding in this way. Pray for the people of Germany, for the victims, the wounded and the loved ones. And let’s do everything we can to make this world a safer place, starting in our neighborhoods and going all the way up to the highest offices in the land.
