“We believe we are dealing with a shooting rampage,” a police spokeswoman said. “We believe there was more than one perpetrator. The first reports came at 6 pm, the shooting apparently began at a McDonald’s in the shopping center. There are still people in the shopping center. We are trying to get the people out and take care of them.”

 

 

 

 

The most recent reports from witnesses have said that there are three gunmen. None of the shooters have been apprehended so far.

There have also been reports of an attack at a metro station in the city center. The metro is being evacuated and the government is urging all people to get off of the streets and into a safe area.

This attack is coming just days after the terrorist attack in Nice, France, where 84 individuals were mowed down by a ISIS terrorist. Earlier this week, there was an attack from a self proclaimed “ISIS soldier” on a train in southern Germany.  

There are a lot of contrary news reports coming from the scene and updates will be added.
