VELIKA IVANCA, SERBIA – Nearly 15 people are dead after a man went on a murderous shooting spree. It happened in a small Serbian town about 25 miles south of the capital.
Authorities say a man in his 60’s walked into five houses and opened fire, killing a handful of men, women and even children. They say the man also tried killing his wife and himself, but their condition is still unknown.
Police also have no idea what drove the man to commit such a horrible crime. To add to the shocking details are some statistics. According to the World Health Organization, Serbia had a very low murder rate in 2010 with 1.2 intentional homicides per 100,000 people.
It’s too bad those statistics didn’t work in their favor this time.
