Those gunned down in Munich last Friday were not former classmates of the killer, nor were they specifically targeted.

Those gunned down in Munich last Friday were not former classmates of the killer, nor were they specifically targeted.

But that new information from German authorities, revealed on Sunday, does nothing to lessen the pain of those mourning the victims – seven of whom were teenagers.

Floral tributes continue to be laid at a makeshift memorial outside a shopping centre, at the scene of the massacre.

Well-wishers feel sorrow, shock and unease.

“I came here because of the people who died and the people who are maybe in hospital” said Munich resident Korina Kiriyak.

“I am feeling different. I am feeling strange and I am feeling not safe. Not safe enough. It is a very strange feeling for me. It is a new feeling because in general Munich is a very, very safe city,” said fellow local Eva Andreeva.

All nine people shot dead – of various ethnic backgrounds – were remembered this Sunday in a mass at Munich Cathedral. An official state memorial will be held in a week’s time.
