Sniper haunts Vienna

Viennese police have said a sniper is on the loose.

Investigators reportedly suspect one person to be behind the various offences although they took place in three different districts of the city in the past days. Ten people were injured when they were hit by bullets fired with an air-powered weapon. Officials asked witnesses and possible more victims to get in touch yesterday (Mon).

The incidents happened in Favoriten, Rudolfsheim-Fünfhaus and Liesing. None of the attacked people were seriously injured. However, some of them needed surgery or other kinds of treatment in hospitals.
