Austrian gunman shoots three dead in Annaberg

A poacher in Austria has shot dead two police officers and an emergency worker and has taken a fourth person hostage, the Austria Press Agency reported Tuesday.

The shootings happened overnight in Annaberg, some 100 kilometres (60 miles) west of Vienna, APA reported.

He was holding the hostage at a farm and it cannot be ruled out that the gunman’s children are also inside, APA said.
