The first seven victims who were brutally massacred in the July 22 shooting at a Munich shopping mall have now been identified. Seven of the nine victims who were brutally, fatally gunned down by Ali Sonboly at a McDonalds were teenagers. Read on for the names of these innocent, lost lives.
Nine people were viciously murdered by teenager Ali Sonboly in Munich, Germany on July 22 after being lured into a McDonalds at the Olympia mall. Of those innocent lives, six have been identified just one day later: Dijamant Zabergja, 21, teenage best friends Armela Segashi and Sabina Sulaj, and Sevda Dag, Can Leyla, Selcuk Kilic, three Turkish nationals.
Aside from Dijamant, the victims’ ages are unclear, although seven of the nine victims are teenagers; the other victim was 45 (and Dijamant, 21). Munich police said that two victims were 13, three were 14, one was 17 and another was 19. All were from the Munich area. The killer himself was just 18-years-old when he committed this atrocious crime.
Dijimant is the son of a police officer, Naim Zabergja, who was seen bringing flowers and a picture of his beloved son to the scene of the mass shooting. He confirmed the unspeakable news in a Facebook post: “With great sadness I want to inform you that my son Dijamant Zabergja, 21, was killed yesterday in Munich.”
Armela and Sabina’s deaths were confirmed by Armela’s brother, Abnor Segashi, on Facebook. He posted pictures of his sister and his friend, with a touching tribute about how much they would be missed. The Turkish Foreign Minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, said that of the three Turkish victims, two were teenagers, and one was a woman, though declined to say who was who.
The teenage shooter in this disgusting tragedy carried out his sick plot by tricking his victims into thinking they were getting free food at the Olympia McDonalds. He posted a fake discount offer on Facebook, filled the fast food joint with unsuspecting victims; he jumped out of the bathroom around 6:00pm local time and began shooting. He killed these people, wounded 27 others, and eventually killed himself.
HollywoodLifers, our thoughts are with the families of these victims.
