Two people have been killed and 11 wounded by a gunman who fired shots into a small crowd attending an open air concert in Austria before shooting himself dead.

Police say the overnight shooting near the town of Nenzing, about 24 miles east of the border with Liechtenstein, was preceded by a loud argument between the gunman and a woman in a nearby car park.

They said on Sunday that the man then fetched a gun out of his car, left the car park, went to the concert venue and started shooting, apparently at random.

State broadcaster ORF says the shooting happened on property used by a motorcycle club.

Police are continuing their investigation at the scene.
