Four people were reportedly killed and another 13 were injured in the horrible terror attack in Vienna, Austria late on Monday. One suspect was shot dead by police.
Interior Minister Karl Nehammer said on Tuesday morning that two men and two woman have died from their injuries.
A suspected attacker, who was carrying an assault rifle and a fake suicide vest, was also shot and killed by police.
Authorities are still determining whether there are more suspects at large and have launched a manhunt.
Minister Karl Nehammer said that the attacker killed had sympathies with the Islamic State.
The 20-year-old dead terrorist of Balkan origin, was born in Austria and was one of the 90 Austrians wanting to go to Syria and fight with the ISIS.
The attack began at just after 8 pm CET on Monday night in a street close to Vienna’s main synagogue that was closed at the time.
Several Twitter users recorded parts of the attack live and posted videos. In a shocking one, a terrorist killed in cold blood a passerby. Another video showing four men wearing white clothes surrendering to police.
Austrian authorities skimp on information to public as investigation continues.
