About a dozen people are wounded as man fires into the crowd

A gunman fired shots early Sunday into a small crowd attending an open air concert in Austria's westernmost province, killing two people and wounding 11 others before shooting himself to death, Associated Press reports.

Police said the shooting was preceded by a loud argument between the gunman and a woman in a nearby parking lot. The man then fetched a gun out of his car, left the parking lot, went to the concert venue and started shooting into the crowd of about 150 people, apparently at random.

They said he shot himself after returning to the parking lot.

The shooting took place near Nenzing, a town in Voralberg province about 40 kilometers east of Austria's border to Liechtenstein.

Local media quoted rescue workers as saying some of the surviving victims were in serious condition. No other details were available, as police continued their investigation at the scene.
