Charred body of Austrian gunman found in bunker of house

By Matthias Loinig,

Police who were hunting the suspected poacher who killed three policemen and a Red Cross paramedic have found his body in a bunker of his home in Großpriel, Lower Austria.

The body of Alois Huber, 55, was found charred in a nuclear shelter in a bunker on the man's farm.

Huber had went on the rampage the previous evening in the Annaberg area of Lilienfeld, before he took a policeman hostage and fled to his farm in Großpriel.

A further police officer was injured after being shot at.

After barricading himself in his property all day, police began attempts to get him at around 18.00 having surrounded the property all day whilst the man shot at random at officers form the house.

Shortly after midnight today (Weds) police found his burned body in the bunker but it was so badly burned it was impossible to formally identify it.

Roland Scherscher, spokesman for the Lower Austrian police said: "We are pleased to report that after 24 hours we can end this operation.

"The officers opened the door tot he bunker and wanted to enter but it was on fire. The fire was put out and then the body discovered.

In total 135 Cobra special officers were involved and a further 200 officers.

The operation was particularly difficult as the man could have been behind any wall or door and had to be tackled very carefully.
