Geneva: Police say a man has shot and killed three people and wounded another two in a Swiss village. Police arrested the man, after shooting and wounding him.

Officers in the southern canton (state) of Valais said they were alerted to the shooting in the village of Daillon late Wednesday evening.

They say that, when police went to the scene, the shooter threatened them — and that they opened fire, wounding the man before arresting him.

Police say three of the victims died at the scene and the two injured people were taken to hospitals. A statement early Thursday gave no detail on their injuries and no information on the possible motives.
