Munich Shooting: Afghan Teenager Met Gunman Shortly Before Attack – Prosecutor


A 16-year-old Afghan youth who was arrested on Sunday had been in contact via WhatsApp with an 18-year-old gunman who killed nine people in Munich on Friday and met him just before the attack, the Bavarian public prosecutor said on Monday.

This (WhatsApp) chat and questioning as a suspect has shown that the Afghan met the gunman directly before the gun attack at what was later the scene of the crime,” senior public prosecutor Thomas Steinkraus-Koch told a news conference in Munich.
