At least one officer is among the injured. Police shot and killed one suspect.

At least one person is dead and 15 others, including a police officer, are among the wounded in an “apparent terrorist attack” in central Vienna on Monday.

Among the injured, seven were last listed in critical condition and were receiving treatment at six area hospitals, Christoph Mierau of the Vienna Health System confirmed to ABC News.

One suspect was shot and killed by police.

Locals are being advised to avoid nearby public places and public transportation by authorities who said initially they were responding to “several suspects armed with rifles” at “six different shooting locations.” The scene was considered “still active” late Monday, police said via Twitter.

The head of the Jewish community in Vienna, Oskar Deutsch, earlier had told The Associated Press the shooting was near the city’s main synagogue, but it wasn’t clear whether the building was targeted. It was closed at the time of the incident.
