Police in Lucerne canton (state) said in a statement that the shooting occurred shortly after 9 am at the premises of Kronospan, a company in the small town of Menznau, west of Lucerne.
They said there were ''several dead and several seriously injured people' and that rescue services were deployed and the scene sealed off. They did not elaborate.
