The police were running towards the attacker anyway The attacker was a single person The police consisted of three people, one of them was shot

At one point during the incident, the gunmen were only five to six meters away, said Ozen, who is from the Turkish town of Sarikaya but is now an Austrian citizen. He said the couple went to the police station « immediately » after, adding: « We spoke to the cops… the terrorists They were wearing something like a white shroud He had a long barreled pistol »

While there was speculation earlier in the night that at least one of the gunmen was heard speaking Turkish during the shooting, it may stem from the confusion surrounding the video featuring Ozen Other images appear to show one of the attackers speaking Arabic
