Shootings in Vienna leave several dead, many injured; 1 shooter dead: reports

Several people were killed and more than a dozen injured during a terror attack from several locations in Vienna, Austria, on Monday, Reuters reported.

One suspect also was shot and killed by Austrian police. At least one attacker is still on the run.

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

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

It is terrorism.

Oskar Deutsch, a leader 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."European leaders condemned the terrorist attacks Monday.

French President Emmanuel Macron tweeted that France shares "the shock and sadness of the Austrians after an attack in Vienna."
