The beautiful city of Vienna, Austria is under armed terrorist attack at this hour, with one police officer and numerous civilians shot dead. Multiple Terrorist Shooters are still roaming the city center.
The attacks began about two hours ago (3:30 PM eastern US time) and are continuing at this hour 5:30 PM (eastern US time).
All mass-transit in the city is shut down. Police are urging everyone to remain inside.
Raging gun battles can be heard echoing in the streets. At least one terrorist is alleged to have blown himself up with a suicide vest.
A single, UNCONFIRMED report is that the Terrorists have been heard speaking Turkish.
The Austrian Interior Ministry has just confirmed that the ARMY is being called-in to the city immediately, to assist police and to protect Embassies and government buildings. THE ARMY ! ! ! ! !

This is necessary because this is a CLOUD-BASED web site. The way it works is YOU READ . . . I GET BILLED for "Data Transfer."
Despite being politely asked for voluntary donations, few people ever bothered to donate. Then, despite being asked to click an ad within a story to generate ad revenue for this site, the majority of the general public couldn't be bothered with that, either. So there's no reason to give the general public free news anymore; they don't pull their own weight.
With tens-of-thousands of people reading stories here every day, the costs nearly drove the site out of business.
In order to be able to continue providing cutting-edge news, often hours or even DAYS before Drudge and most of the "mass-media" -- if they even cover it at all -- I need to be able to sustain this effort. To do that, I rely on folks like YOU contributing a pittance of about $1 a week; which is chump-change that you won't even miss! Yet that small amount makes all the difference in the world to the continued existence of this web site.
In the final analysis, knowledge is power. Getting information first, or info that other sources simply don't report, is usually well worth a few bucks in the long run.

Police are grabbing up ANYONE who even remotely looks like the perps; wearing Khacki pants, for instance. This appears to be young boys being searched - possible mistaken identity?

Desperate to protect itself, society in Vienna is looking at anyone. In the heat of the moment, it is, perhaps, understandable. But these boys are sure not appreciating what's happening . . . if they're innocent.
Austrian authorities have published a map of the incidents so far in the city:
