“He then went out in the street and used the same rifle to shoot other residents of this settlement,” a witness told RTCG that the shooter “indiscriminately shot people as he walked through the street.”
Furthermore, authorities stated that they had identified the attacker, adding that his rampage was brought to an end when he was shot dead by a civilian.
Montenegro’s President Milo Đukanović noted that he was “deeply shaken” by the news. “I express my sincerest condolences to the bereaved families, to all those who lost their loved ones,” Đukanović wrote on Twitter.
In the same vein, Prime Minister Dritan Abazovic called on the country to offer support to the families of the victims, highlighting that the incident was unprecedented in Montenegro’s recent history.
“I invite all the citizens of Montenegro to be with the families of the innocent victims,” Abazovic wrote in a post on Telegram. Hours after the attack, the prime minister declared three days of mourning in the country.
