Eight people were killed in a second mass shooting in Serbia.
Several individuals were killed and at least ten others were injured in Serbia’s second mass shooting in as many days.
According to reports, the attacker shot an automatic weapon from a moving car near a town 60 kilometers (37 miles) south of Belgrade.
According to unconfirmed accounts, the culprit is still on the run.
A teenager killed eight classmates at a school in Belgrade earlier this week, in the worst mass shooting in Serbia in years.
Serbian media reported on Friday morning that special police troops had arrived in the villages of Mladenovac and Dubona, the sites of the latest slaughter.
Photos from the area show cops halting cars at checkpoints in an attempt to find the gunman. A helicopter, drones, and various police patrols also combed the region near Dubona for the culprit.
According to local media reports, a 20-year-old guy began firing at people with an automatic firearm after arguing with a police officer in a park in Dubona on Thursday evening.
The man is then accused of shooting people from a car, killing at least eight people and injuring many more.
Danica Grujii, the minister of health, and Aleksandar Vulin, the head of the Security Intelligence Agency, reportedly traveled to the location in the early hours of Friday.
On Wednesday, a thirteen-year-old boy shot dead eight classmates and a security officer at his Belgrade school. It prompted the Serbian government to propose tighter gun ownership restrictions.
Mass shootings are uncommon in Serbia, which has strong gun laws, yet the country has one of the highest rates of gun ownership in Europe.
