Munich Police said in a statement: ‘At around 5.50pm (local time) today there were witnesses who called the police and said there was a shooting at the Hanauer Street.

‘The shooting moved from that street to the shopping centre. The witnesses said there were three different people with weapons.’

A police reporter for Bavarian Radio said police were moving people off the streets in central Munich as they search for the perpetrators.

‘All of the police forces are at the shopping centre and at the official places in Munich as well and they’re calling out that nobody’s allowed to go to the official places,’ the reporter, Lena Deutch, told the BBC.

‘They are trying to close everything down because we do not know where this person who’s been doing the shooting is at the moment.’

It is reported that at least one of the gunman fled after his shooting spree on the city underground network, which has now been shut down.

Photos flashed on to social media sites of at least one body covered by aluminium sheets.

‘Stay in your homes. Leave the road!’ Polizei M√ľnchen said in a Tweet.

A spokesman for the German police said there was a ‘shooting spree’. An official at the Munich Olympia Shopping Centre declined comment, saying only, ‘We are experiencing a problem.’

Workers have said they are still hiding inside the Munich shopping centre after the shooting in the building.

One employee reported that ‘many shots were fired’ during the incident and he saw one person lying on the ground with serious injuries.

Another said: ‘Many shots were fired, I can’t say how many but it’s been a lot.

‘All the people from outside came streaming into the store and I only saw one person on the ground who was so severely injured that he definitely didn’t survive. We have no further information, we’re just staying in the back in the storage rooms. No police have approached us yet.’

Another worker, Lynn Stein, told CNN: ‘I was just going to buy something while my co-worker was still in the shop.

‘People started running. I went outside as well, more people were running outside. I think I heard more shots. Then it sounded like he went to the parking house next to the mall – several shots there.

‘I saw somebody lying on the floor, presumably dead and there’s a woman over them, crying.’
