Vienna Terrorist Attack

Live Updates: 4 Dead; Suspect Was ISIS ‘Sympathizer’

A gunman was killed, and the authorities say that there is no indication of any other attackers having been involved in the shooting rampage in central Vienna.

A man who opened fire in central Vienna on Monday night while armed with an automatic rifle, a pistol and a machete and wearing a fake explosive device was a 20-year-old Austrian citizen who had sought to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State, Interior Minister Karl Nehammer said in a news briefing on Tuesday.

The rampage left four dead and 22 others wounded in the heart of the Austrian capital before the gunman was killed by the police nine minutes after the assault began, Mr. Nehammer said, adding that the evidence gathered so far showed no indication that others were involved.
