A Munich court found the 33-year-old man, identified as Philipp K. in line with Germany's privacy laws, guilty of nine counts of involuntary manslaughter, five counts of involuntary bodily harm, and violating weapons laws.

It was the first time that an illegal weapons dealer in Germany was found to be partly responsible for an act that he did not take part in, reported Germany-based news agency dpa.

The teen shooter purchased the Glock 17 pistol and 450 rounds of ammunition from Philipp K. via the Darknet and picked up the weapon in the central German town of Marburg where the defendant lived.
