Video has emerged apparently showing the moment a gunman began shooting at people outside a McDonald's in a shopping centre in Munich.

At least ten people, including the gunman, have been killed in a shooting in and around a shopping centre in Munich.

In the amateur video, a man dressed in black can be seen raising a pistol outside the entrance to the fast food restaurant.

Several people who are just metres away turn and run before he opens fire.

Numerous shots are heard as the person filming also appears to flee turning the camera towards the pavement.

It is not clear whether any of the people seen in the video were shot.

Police have described the shooting as an "acute terror attack".

The footage can be viewed here, but viewer discretion is advised.
