Three people have died in a hostage situation in Zurich, police say.
A gunman, who has not been named, held two women captive in a flat in the south-west of the city early on Friday.
Police say they were locked in a standoff with the man for three hours, before he promised to surrender.
Shots were fired soon afterwards, and officers found three people – a man, 60, and two women aged 34 and 38 – in a critical condition.
All three dropped dead at the scene.
