Four people were killed and dozens injured after a gunman brought havoc to the streets of the Austrian capital of Vienna on Monday night, just hours before the start of a coronavirus lockdown.

Authorities initially feared that several gunmen had taken part in the attack but Interior Minister Karl Nehammer told reporters on Tuesday afternoon that evidence gathered thus far shows no indication that there was a second attacker.

The gunman was killed but several others were believed to be on the run, sparking a city-wide manhunt and prompting authorities to warn residents to stay in their homes.

The attacks came as Viennese were out in restaurants and bars enjoying the last night before the beginning of a partial lockdown to stop the spread of COVID-19.
