Shooting in central Vienna leaves 1 dead, 1 badly wounded; police searching for gunman

BERLIN -- A shooting Friday in central Vienna left one person dead and another seriously wounded, Austrian authorities said. Police were looking for the gunman.

Police said they were searching for the perpetrator throughout the city but added that "there is currently no danger to people who are not involved."

A witness who was interviewed on OE24 television, who called himself a Lithuanian journalist but didn't give his name, said he heard about 10 pistol shots and saw two people lying on the ground in a passage between two streets.

He said a third man was talking to one of those people in a Slavic language, but he couldn't say which one.
