Several people have been found dead after a shooting in a residential area in the village Würenlingen Aargau north of Switzerland. The police assume that the perpetrator is among the dead.
It was the neighbors who alerted the police after they had heard several shots around 23 o'clock on Saturday night. Paramedics found several lifeless people both inside and outside a residential building in the town of Würenlingen, police said.
All of the victims were declared dead at the scene. The circumstances surrounding the killings is not known. A neighbor says to the online newspaper 20 Minuten that he has seen three bodies outside the house, but police would not confirm the number of victims. All victims are adults.
The police assume that the perpetrator is among the victims, says police spokesman Bernard Graser when asked by the local radio station Radio Pilatus if someone has been arrested. It is now up to the coroner to confirm the theory.
The scene of the crime is located in a street with both single family and multi-family homes. Police in the Swiss canton Aargau who is investigating the case has announced a press conference on Sunday afternoon.
Würenlingen has about 4,500 inhabitants and is located northwest of Zurich.
