An unverified video shows the alleged Munich gunman opening fire outside a McDonalds restaurant near the Olympia-Einkaufszentrum metro station.

The sound of multiple shots being fired can be heard in an unverified video as shoppers and passers-by run for cover.

Police in Munich say they do not know where the attacker or attackers are and have repeated the warning for people to avoid public places.

They also tweeted that there are rumours of another shooting in the city, but that the location is unclear.

In the unverified video, a man with dark hair, wearing a black t-shirt and denim trousers, appears to take aim at people outside a McDonald's restaurant near the Olympia-Einkaufszentrum metro station.

He raises his arms, apparently holding a shotgun, and appears to fire at people outside the restaurant, who can be seen running for cover.

Shots were fired at the Olympia Einkaufszentrum mall in Munich, police had earlier stated.
