11 Killed, Including 2 Children, in Montenegro Gun Attack, Report State Media!
According to state media, at least 11 people were killed in a mass shooting in Cetinje, a city in the south of Montenegro, on Friday. Two of the people killed were children.
Zoran Branin, the head of the police force in Montenegro, said that the suspected shooter first attacked a family who rented a room in his house.
“He killed two children, 8 and 11 years old, using a hunting rifle, and injured their mother, who later succumbed to her wounds in a medical facility,” Brđanin said.
“He then went out into the street and shot other people in this settlement with the same gun.”
A witness told RTCG that the shooter “indiscriminately shot people as he walked through the street.”
Authorities say they have identified the attacker — said to be a 34-year-old man — and that his rampage was brought to an end when he was shot dead by a civilian.
Ljiljana Radulovic, who is in charge of the Clinical Center of Montenegro, said that three of the people who were hurt are in the hospital and are in very bad shape.
Montenegro’s President Milo Đukanović tweeted on Friday that he was “deeply shaken” by the news.
“I send my deepest condolences to the families of the dead and to everyone who lost a loved one. In these hard times, we as a society must all stand together with them “Đukanović said on Twitter.
