Two dead in Basel café shooting - manhunt underway
Basel police have launched a major manhunt after two people were killed and one seriously injured by two gunmen who opened fire in a café.
Officials say the men entered the café on Erlenstrasse at 8.15 last night and fired several times.
They then fled towards a nearby train station – very close to the German border.
The motive of the attack is not known – but locals told the Basler Zeitung newspaper the bar has had a reputation for drug use in the past.
Police are not releasing any further information at this time.
