A gunman in Montenegro has left eleven people dead and six injured after going on a shooting rampage in the city of Cetinje.

Eleven people have been reported to have died in a mass shooting incident that occurred today, Friday, August 12, in the city of Cetinje, in Montenegro. The deceased included children according to Radio Cetinje. Six more were injured in the shooting, according to in4s.net.

The incident took place in the Medovina settlement, near the Government House, where an individual opened fire, apparently shooting randomly at passers-by with a firearm. A fellow citizen reportedly shot the gunman dead. He was identified as 34-year-old Vucko Borilovic.

It is not known whether the gunman committed suicide or if he was shot by the police. One policeman was said to have been shot in the head during the incident. According to the Cetinje radio station, the event was triggered by a family dispute, after which the man appears to have gone on his fatal shooting rampage in the city.

After the investigation in Cetinje, duty prosecutor Andrijana Nastic reported that nine people had died on the spot. She later told Vijesti television that she received information from the Clinical Centre of Montenegro that two more people had succumbed to their injuries.
