In Munich, a gunman did a terrible thing when he came to a shopping centre and killed 9 people and injured 27. Afterward, he killed himself.

Police and officials spoke about the attacker. He was not related to the Islamic State, but officials said that doctors were giving him psychiatric care. He did not have a license for his gun, police did not know him, and he had no criminal record. They are now investigating why he did this.

Emergency staff said that they received over 4,000 calls because of this attack.

Difficult words: afterward (then), psychiatric (relating to the study of mental illness), staff (people that work somewhere).
