A man armed with a chainsaw injured at least five people in an attack in a Swiss town on Monday, local media reported.
A local shop manager said the attacker was wielding a chainsaw and that businesses and pedestrians had been evacuated.
Police, ambulances and a helicopter had rushed to the scene in Schaffhausen and had sealed off the area.
Police told multiple local media outlets there had been an attack but officers have not confirmed that a chainsaw was used.
A major manhunt is now underway for the male suspect. Police have urged people to avoid the area until the operation is completed.
