Vienna shooting LIVE – Massive manhunt after ISIS ‘Instagram’ terrorists kill 4 in gun rampage near Austrian synagogue


A HUGE 1,000-PERSON manhunt is underway to find several “armed and dangerous” ISIS gunmen after a massacre near a synagogue in Vienna.

Austria’s public broadcaster, ORF, cited witnesses saying several shots were fired shortly after 8pm (7pm GMT) in the centre of the capital.

Four people were killed and 17 people injured as a result of the attacks, which took place at six different locations near the Stadttempel synagogue.

One police officer was also shot and injured. Several perpetrators are said to be at large and on the run, according to the Austrian Interior Ministrty.

A gunman named as Kurtin S armed with an assault rifle and wearing a fake bomb vest was shot dead following the rampage.

Prior to the massacre Kurtin S announced his attack on Instagram and pledged allegiance to ISIS. He is understood to be a 20-year-old dual citizen of Austria and North Macedonia who’d previously been jailed for trying to travel to Syria.
