Vienna attack: CCTV, witness footage show terrorist suspect run around & open fire at central city sites
As Austrian police say multiple attackers have taken part in a terrorist shooting in Vienna’s old city, images have emerged of a bearded man dressed in white and using an AK-style assault rifle to shoot at civilians and police.

The yet-unidentified man can be seen in security footage, walking down the cobblestone-lined street before pulling up a rifle and shooting a man in cold blood outside the Stadttempel, a synagogue dating back to the 1820s on Vienna’s Seitenstettengasse on Monday evening.
