GENEVA—A gunman has injured several people in Switzerland’s largest city, and the suspect remains at large, a Zurich police official said Monday.

Police were swarming to the scene in pursuit of the attacker, the official said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly about the matter.

The SDA news agency reported that the victims were adults who were outside near an Islamic center. Police said is unclear whether the attack had to do anything with the location.

Police told German-language daily Blick that three people had been injured, and the suspect had fled the scene.

Attacks by armed gunmen are rare in Switzerland.
