At least one civilian was killed and several others injured in Vienna, police said, in what Austrian authorities believe was a terrorist attack.

Austrian Interior Minister Karl Nehammer and Vienna police have said the attack appears to have been carried out by several gunmen at six different locations in close proximity to one another. One suspect has reportedly been shot and killed by law enforcement. A police officer is reportedly among the wounded.

One suspect is reportedly on the run, but there have not been any reports as to whether any others have been apprehended or are still at large.

The shooting took place in the vicinity of Vienna's central synagogue, which was closed at the time of the attack, leaving it unclear if the place of worship was targeted.
