Montenegro mass shooting leaves 2 children dead, their mother dead

According to Montenegrin Police Chief Zoran Br anin, the suspected shooter first attacked a family that was living in his house as tenants.

He killed two children, 8 and 11 years old, using a hunting rifle, and injured his mother, who later succumbed to her wounds in a medical facility, Br anin said.

He then went out in the street and used the same rifle to shoot other residents of the settlement. 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.
