BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — A 60-year old man gunned down 13 people, including six women and a child, as he went on a shooting spree from house to house in a quiet village near Belgrade on Tuesday before trying to kill himself and his wife, police and hospital official said.
Belgrade emergency hospital spokeswoman Nada Macura said the 60-year-old man identified only as Ljubisa B. used a handgun in the rampage.
Villagers told Serbian reporters he first killed his son before leaving the house and shooting his neighbors, some of whom were still asleep.
