Shootings in Austria leave at least 1 dead, several injured; shooter dead


At least one person was killed and several injured during an ongoing terror attack from several locations in Vienna, Austria, Monday.

One suspect also was shot and killed by Austrian police. 

The Austrian Police tweeted that several suspects armed with rifles started shooting at 8 p.m. local time in six different locations. 

Counterterrorism sources told Fox News that having multiple shooters in six different locations indiate a coordinated, planned effort.

“Our police will take decisive action against the perpetrators of this hideous terrorist attack,” Sebastian Kurz, the chancellor of Austria, tweeted

“I am glad that our police officers have already been able to eliminate a perpetrator. We will never allow ourselves to be intimidated by terrorism and will fight these attacks resolutely by all means.”

Karl Nehammer, minister of the interior, told public broadcaster ORF that the army is guarding key locations to free up police to search for the gunmen.

Oskar Deutsch, the head of the Jewish community in Vienna, said that the shooting in Seitenstettengasse took place near a synagogue. 

“It cannot be said at the moment whether the city temple was one of the goals,” Deutsch tweeted. “What is certain, however, is that both the synagogue in Seitenstettengasse and the office building at the same address were no longer in operation and closed at the time of the first shots.”
