Investigators were seeking clues Sunday into the mind of gunman David Ali Sonboly, the teen author of one of Germany's bloodiest killing sprees.

Sonboly's rampage at a Munich shopping mall on Friday sparked a terror alert, with fears that Germany had followed France and Belgium this year in becoming targets of the ISIL group.

But after a forensic sweep of Sonboly's home, investigators on Saturday ruled out any link with the ruthless extremist.

Thirty-five others were injured, 11 of them seriously, according to a new toll released by Munich police Sunday. Those figures included people who hurt themselves while fleeing.
