The father of the 18-year-old man who perpetrated the shooting attack at a Munich shopping mall that left nine dead, alerted the police after recognising his son in one of the first videos that began circulating the internet shortly after the massacre.

Bavarian investigator Robert Heimberger announced in a press conference that the father headed to the police station to report his suspicions.

The family of the attacker is still in shock of what happened, while the police did not manage to interrogate his parents so far.
