Three people have been injured in a shooting at an Islamic center in Zurich, police said. Zurich city police said an unidentified person entered the center, not far from the city’s main train station, on Monday evening and fired several shots at a group of people gathered there for prayers. The attacker, who is believed to be about 30 years old and was wearing dark clothing, fled the scene but remained at large roughly 3 ½ hours after the incident, police said. The police said the crime scene had been secured, and the injured had been hospitalized. Both city and cantonal police have begun a search for the attacker and have asked for witnesses to come forward. In addition, police said they found the body of a man a few blocks from the shooting and are investigating whether there is a connection to the attack.
