    Similar to the recent terrorist attack in Nice, France, Munich residents have taken to social media offering refuge to people seeking shelter after the shopping mall shooting that has left at least 10 dead and 20 injured.

    A second shooting has also been reported at Marienplatnz Station, along with Twitter posts about shots heard at Isartor station near the city's center. But these have not been confirmed.

    German newspapers have confirmed that at least one of the shooters has committed suicide, and authorities are saying it's highly likely that there is only one shooter. The hashtag, #Offenetür, translates to "Open Door".

    ​Police are still cautioning that there is an active shooter situation in Munich, and continue to search for other suspected terrorists.
