The darknet (or dark web) is an overlay network that can only be accessed with specific software, configurations, or authorization, often using non-standard communications protocols and ports. Two typical darknet types are friend-to-friend networks (usually used for file sharing with a peer-to-peer connection) and privacy networks such as Tor.

The shooting took began at a McDonald's restaurant near the shopping mall. Officials identified the lone gunman as an 18-year-old German of Iranian descent from Munich who later committed suicide.

According to latest reports, most of the victims were young people from Munich (among them three Kosovo nationals, three Turkish nationals and one Greek national) the oldest being a 45-year-old woman. Latest reports indicate that the shooter was inspired by the attack which happened 5 years ago in Norway also on July 22.
