There are 21 people who are currently under investigation in Austria as possible accomplices of the jihadist who went on a deadly shooting rampage in Vienna last week to discover more details about the attack such as how he has arrived to the scene of the crime. 

The Vienna native that was armed with a handgun, machete and an assault rifle has killed four people in a part of the city center with many bars where Vienna’s main synagogue is located, which was closed at the time. 

“No one else was immediately involved in carrying out this crime on Nov. 2. What we cannot yet say definitively is to what extent accomplices provided support before the act,” Michael Lohnegger, the police official that was leading the investigation, told a news conference.

Nina Bussek, Vienna proescutors’ office spokeswoman, said that the number of people that were arrested in custody over the attack remains unchanged at 10, while over 21 people are under investigation. 

The additional accomplices are still unknown.
