A gunman has opened fire in a Spanish supermarket shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’.

The attacker, who was reportedly carrying gasoline and gunpowder, walked into the Mercadona shop, in the As Lagoas region of the northwestern region Ourense, before opening firing shots into the air.

Several shoppers were inside the supermarket when the man entered and fired several shots into the air, causing emergency services to swoop on the building.

According to police sources, the young man has psychological problems and is lives next-door to the shop.

The incident, which happened at around 2pm, did not result in any injuries but left many extremely shaken.

One employee confirmed that he had shouted the Arabic phrase for ‘God is great’ before he began shooting.

Witnesses told how they suddenly heard screams and shots before nearby officers screamed at them to get away.
