12 killed in Montenegro mass shooting after family dispute

Twelve people, including a gunman, have been killed in a mass shooting in Montenegro after a man opened fire at random in the city of Cetinje, reportedly after a family dispute.

State television said the 34-year-old gunman had also wounded six people, including a policeman, during the shooting in the Medovina neighbourhood.

The attacker had randomly shot at people walking in the street, including children, according to the broadcaster RTCG.

Four of the wounded were transported to a hospital in Cetinje, while two others with serious wounds were sent to a clinical centre in the capital, Podgorica, it said.

The man was shot dead by police, the reports said.

RTCG quoted police sources as saying the attack came after a family dispute, but gave no further details. The police still haven't issued an official statement about the attack, but they have blocked off the site.

The Montenegrin Prime Minister, Dritan Abazovi, wrote on his Telegram channel that there had been an unprecedented tragedy in Cetinje and called for the country to be in their thoughts with the families of the innocent victims, their relatives, friends and all the people of Cetinje.
