Report: Two people shot dead in eastern Kentucky

Two people have died, and a teenager has been left wounded in a shooting in eastern Kentucky, the Press Association reports.

The shooting happened yesterday afternoon in the car park of Hazard Community and Technical college in Hazard.

According to Conor Duff, the college's evening co-ordinator, the shootings took place at 4.30pm (9.30pm GMT) at the campus.

He added that police had searched the school's buildings to check no one else was at risk.

Shortly after, the school was on lockdown, although the school's website reports it has since been reopened.

Wounded left lying on the ground in Swiss shooting

Special police units and local police forces were alerted by a caller who said several people were lying wounded on the ground at about 8:50 p.m. (1950 GMT), the police statement said.

It said the incident was being investigated and the site had been closed off. More information would be released later today at a news conference in the village, which is close to the town of Sion, the capital of the canton - or region - of Valais.

Mass shootings are rare in Switzerland, although gun possession is widespread - some estimates run to at least one for every three of its 8 million inhabitants. Many are stored in people's attics, a legacy of Switzerland's policy of arming its men to defend its neutrality.

Three killed in Swiss village shooting

The gunman was a resident of the village, aged about 30, who was armed with an assault rifle and had been drinking heavily, according to Swiss website 20minutes.ch.
