CLICK TO ENLARGE(INTERNATIONAL) -- A work place shooting, indeed any criminal shooting incident is a fairly rare event in Switzerland which has relatively little gun related crime despite having one of the highest rates of gun ownership in the world.

But it does happen. Police say several people have been killed and seriously injured during a shooting at a factory near the Swiss city of Lucerne.

The shooting occurred at the Kronospan wood processing plant in the town of Menznau, police said in a statement.

One witness to the incident said five people had been killed, according to a Swiss newspaper, the Luzerner Zeitung, a Swiss-German language daily newspaper published in Lucerne. Police did not immediately confirm that account.

The shooting reportedly started in the canteen at the factory around 09:00 (08:00 GMT). The Swiss police statement said emergency services were on the scene.

An English translation from the Luzerner Zeitung report said," The Swiss Rega air rescue was with (sic) three helicopters in use. They flew a total of four seriously injured in two different hospitals... still no information on the subject."

There was no immediate word on the shooter or shooters or precisely what happened at the factory or why.
