A state prosecutor told Vijesti TV that eleven people, including two children and one assailant, were killed and six others injured in a mass shooting in Montenegro on Friday, after an initial investigation of the crime scene.
Montenegro Police Director Zoran Brdjanin said a 34-year-old man shot and killed two brothers, eight and 11 years old, with a hunting rifle, and injuring their mother, who died in a medical facility in the afternoon.

“The family was staying as tenants in the attacker’s house,” said Brdjanin. Stating that the reason for the shooting is not yet known, Ateş said that he did not give the name of the attacker, but his initials were VB.

The shooter then left his home and killed seven more. Brdjanin said a police officer was injured in a shootout with police.
“When we arrived at the scene, we saw nine bodies, two of them children, and the other two died on the way to the hospital,” state prosecutor Andrijana Nastic told Vijesti TV.

“I can only say that the attacker was killed by a citizen (civilian),” Nastik said. Earlier, the media reported that the police killed the attacker.

Montenegrin Prime Minister Dritan Abazovic said three days of mourning will be declared in the country from Friday evening.

President Milo Djukanovic said, “I am deeply disturbed by the news about the terrible tragedy in Cetinje. I extend my deepest condolences to the families affected and to all those who lost their loved ones.”
