MUNICH (AFP) - The 18-year-old gunman who killed nine people in a shooting spree on Friday (July 22) did not specifically choose his victims, chief prosecutor Thomas Steinkraus-Koch said on Sunday.

"It is not the case that he deliberately selected" the people he shot, Steinkraus-Koch told a news briefing.
