Austrian Paramedic among Police Officers Killed by Gunman

GROSSPRIEL, Austria (AP) — Austrian officials say an examination of the charred body believed to be that of the gunman who killed three policemen and a paramedic shows he apparently killed himself with a shot to the head.

Police found the body early Wednesday behind a hidden door of a secret cellar in a farm building where the gunman barricaded himself. They said they believed the remains were that of 55-year-old suspect Alois Huber.

State Prosecutor Michaela Schnell says authorities "assume at this point that it was suicide."

The shooting rampage began early Tuesday, after police looking for poachers tried to question Huber and ended with the discovery more than 24 hours later of the body consumed by a fire that he apparently lit.
