A police operation is underway after gunfire erupted Friday at a shopping center in Munich, Germany. The shooting “looks like a terror attack,” a police representative said, and at least three attackers remain on the loose.

At least five people were killed in the shooting spree, police said. Authorities shut down public transportation and warned people to stay home or seek protection.

Shooting broke out at a McDonald’s across from the Olympia shopping mall around 5:50 p.m., police spokeswoman Claudia Küntzel said, Gunfire also broke out inside the mall, witnesses said.

Police also said gunfire was reported in several locations, and that witnesses report seeing three people with firearms.

“The manhunt is underway at high speed,” police said. “Because of the unclear situation we ask all people in the city area to stay at home or to look for protection in any nearby building. The operation of public transportation service has been stopped.”
