Rescue services said that at least one person was killed in the shooting. 

The incident took place in the traditional Austrian Figlmueller restaurant located just few hundred meters away from Vienna’s iconic St. Stephen’s Cathedral. Two people with gunshot wounds were found near the restaurant, the local police department said in a Twitter post, adding that the details of the incident are still unclear.

Some witnesses said that several gunmen went on a shooting spree in front of the restaurant around 13:30 (local time), (12:30 GMT).

Austrian media reported that the shooting suspect is on the run.

Police have cordoned off a large area around the restaurant. A helicopter has been scrambled to aid in the search for the suspect.
