ZURICH (Reuters) - Austrian police are searching for a 66-year-old man suspected of shooting dead two neighbours and wounding a third before escaping in a white Volkswagen van.

The suspect from the Graz area is suspected of killing a 64-year-old man and a 65-year-old woman and wounding a 48-year-old woman in a dispute among neighbours, Styria province police said in a statement.

The suspect fled in a Volkswagen van whose number plate matched that of one with a poster reading "Heil Hitler" across its rear window that was shown on an Austrian website. The website offers users a platform to criticise alleged abuses of power by justice officials.

Police warned residents not to approach the suspect amid a search stretching across neighbouring provinces.
