    Police report that there are no indications that Zurich's shooting is linked to terrorism.

    The scene has been cordoned off. It is still unclear whether there are people injured in the incident.

    In March 2017, a shooting at a cafe in Switzerland's Basel left two people dead and another one gravely injured.
