Vienna: ‘A number of injured’ after pictures fired ‘at synagogue’ Austrian capital

Several people were injured after shots were fired in the Austrian capital of Vienna on Monday night, police said.

Austrian public broadcaster ORF has reported that a large-scale police operation is under way at a Vienna synagogue after reports of gunfire.

ORF cited witnesses saying several shots were fired shortly after 8pm local time. The Die Presse newspaper reported that it was in the Schwedenplatz area. 

In video footage posted online sustained gunfire can be heard as people duck and weave for cover. Another video appears to show someone lying seriously injured in a pool of blood outside a restaurant.

Vienna police tweeted that officers were out in force and the exact circumstances of the incident were still being determined.

“Shots fired in the Inner City district – there are persons injured – keep away from all public places or public transport – don’t share any videos or photos! There is a larger police operation going on in the 1st district of Vienna (Inner City area). Officers are on site and check the situation. We keep you posted on the matter.”
