A potential terror attack is currently underway in Vienna, where gunshots have been reported at a synagogue that stands as the epicenter of what remains of the city’s Jewish population.

The attack occurred near Schwedenplatz, a main square near the synagogue where a large police deployment was underway.

Another video of one of the gunmen up close was uploaded to twitter.

The attacker has reportedly blown himself up with an explosive belt. Additional “perpetrators” are said to be on the run according to reports in a local newspaper. The number of suspects wasn’t immediately clear. Police have asked Austrians to avoid the area in the city’s First District where the attack took place.

Police were cordoning off the area around the Rotensturmstrasse. According to reports, one officer was shot and is in serious condition.

“It sounded like a blast,” one eyewitness told the local press.

“Then you noticed that these were shots. Then you saw a person running down the Seitenstetten (who shot) wildly with an automatic weapon. He then turned down, at the (local) ‘Roter Engel’ from there in the direction of Schwedenplatz. He continued to shoot wildly there. Then the police came and fired. “

Eyewitnesses reported “at least 50 shots.” There were pictures of at least one injured person who was bleeding on the floor in front of a bar and was being cared for.

The total number of casualties and deaths remains unclear, though one police officer is said to have been seriously wounded.
