A shooting in southern Switzerland has left three women dead, two men wounded and raised questions about how a troubled suspect was able to go on a rampage with an old military rifle.
The suspect, a 33-year-old unemployed man living on welfare, fired about 20 shots Wednesday night in Daillon, a village in the canton of Valais.
He opened fire from his apartment and pursued people in the street, police said Thursday. Armed with a Swiss military rifle and a handgun, he then threatened to shoot the officers sent in to stop him.
