Munich's residents placed flowers and lit candles near the scene of Friday night's shopping mall and fast food restaurant attack where a gunman killed nine people. Another 16 were wounded before the 18-year-old shooter apparently took his own life. (SOUNDBITE)(German) MUNICH RESIDENT GUDRUN RUEGEMER SAYING: "This is my home, I'm always walking by. My fitness studio is here, I shop here, my daily life happens here and now I don't know how it's going to feel to keep coming here. Somehow the innocence is lost or the safe feeling but there is no such thing as security." Police say the killer was a German-Iranian with dual nationality. The motive for the bloodshed remained a mystery a day after the attack although authorities say he appeared to have acted alone. It's the third major act of violence against civilians in Western Europe in just over a week, following an earlier attack in Germany and one in France.
