At least six people were reportedly killed Friday in a shooting at a shopping mall in Munich, Germany.

Police said “many” shots rang out at Olympia Einkaufszentrum shopping center at about 6pm local time in what they are calling a suspected terrorist attack.

A cell phone video captured a gunman opening fire outside a McDonald’s at the shopping center. He appeared to be firing a handgun as several people fled.

Up to three shooters are reportedly on the run.

The U.S. consulate is advising people to shelter in place amid reports of more shootings in the city.

A gunman is said to have fled through the underground transit network. All public transportation in the city has been shut down.

Police asked citizens not to post photos or videos from the area to avoid helping the attackers.

The two-floor mall is the largest one in southeast Germany and opened in 1972 for the Summer Olympics. It’s located in the Moosach district of Munich.

This comes just days after a 17-year-old Afghan asylum seeker injured five people with an axe and knife on a train in the Bavarian city of Wuerzburg.

ISIS later claimed responsibility for the attack.

The attacker screamed “Allahu akbar” during the attack and was shot dead by police.
