Huseyin Dayicik was one of nine people gunned down by a German-Iranian teen at a Munich shopping mall Friday evening. Dayicik, 19, was at the Olympia Center McDonald's with his twin sister when the attacker, later identified by German officials as 18-year-old David Ali Sonboly, opened fire.
Rather than running to safety, Dayicik threw himself in front of the lone shooter to block his sister from the bullets, according to the Sun. He was shot twice.
The Greek teen was reportedly at the shopping mall Friday buying gifts for his family when Sonboly launched his attack. His sister's name was not mentioned in the Sun's report.
Most of Sonboly's victims were teens. Police say the 18-year-old killed nine and injured 35 more before killing himself.
Investigators and neighbors have described Sonboly as a troubled teen, "obsessed" with mass killings.
