The United States condemns "in the strongest terms" the apparent terrorist attack that has claimed innocent lives in the southern German city of Munich, the White House said Friday.

"We still do not know all of the facts, but we do know that this heinous act has killed and injured multiple individuals in the heart of one of Europe's most vibrant cities," White House spokesman Josh Earnest said in a statement.

At least nine people were killed and 16 others injured in a shootout in a shopping mall in Munich on Friday evening. The likely lone shooter was an 18-year-old German-Iranian man, according to local police.

The United States will work closely with its German partners and make available any resources that would assist their investigation, Earnest said.

"The resolve of Germany, the United States, and the broader international community will remain unshaken in the face of acts of despicable violence such as this," the spokesman added.
