According to the UK Daily Mail, up to 6 people have died and up to 15 have been injured in a shooting that appeared to occur in both the Olympia Shopping Centre and the McDonald's across the street from the mall.

Videos and photos posted on social media show a gunman firing multiple shots at fleeing people and numerous injured or dead people lying on the ground.
