VIENNA — A gunman fired shots early Sunday into a small crowd attending an open air concert in Austria’s westernmost province, killing two people and wounding 11 others before shooting himself to death, police said.

Police said the overnight shooting was preceded by a loud argument between the gunman and a woman in a nearby parking lot. The man then fetched a gun out of his car, left the parking lot, went to the concert venue and started shooting into the crowd of about 150 people, apparently at random.
