Meanwhile, French President Emmanuel Macron vowed Europe would not bow to terrorists following the shootings.

Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said shootings in Vienna late on Monday were "repulsive terror attack", adding that the army would protect sites in the capital so the police could focus on anti-terror operations.

"We are currently experiencing difficult hours in our republic. I would like to thank all the emergency forces who are risking their lives for our safety, especially today. Our police will take decisive action against the perpetrators of this repulsive terrorist attack," Kurz wrote on Twitter.

Meanwhile, French President Emmanuel Macron vowed Europe would not bow to terrorists following the shootings.

"We French share the shock and sorrow of the Austrian people following the attack in Vienna," Macron tweeted in both French and German.

"After France, it is a friendly nation that has been attacked. This is our Europe. Our enemies must know who they're dealing with. We will concede nothing."
