According to the police, a gunman killed three relatives and a neighbor before turning the gun on himself in the Swiss town on Wurenlingen, near Zurich.

The attacker, who was separated from his wife and three children, shot dead his parents-in-law and brother-in-law on Saturday (May 09th). The 36-year-old then proceeded into a second house and killed a male neighbor.

Wurenlingen which is a German-speaking town of around 4,000 people, is located about 30km (20 miles) North-West of Zurich. The Police found the bodies lying inside and outside a residential building overnight.

The victims and the gunman were Swiss nationals. According to foreign media reports the gunman is said to have had a record of violent behavior and had also been living apart from his family.

It is also reported that the attacker’s wife and children had reportedly left the family home and moved to a seperate house just before the attack unfolded.

Police say the investigation into the shooting may be difficult as there are multiple crime scenes.
