A man armed with an assault rifle went on a rampage in the Slovak capital Bratislava on Monday killing eight people and injuring 15, among them a Czech national. The shooting spree started shortly after 10am in the apartment of a Roma family where the gunman killed 6 people. He then left the apartment and according to one witness started to shoot “at everything that moved”. Police have refused to speculate about a racist motive. Thirteen people are in hospital, one of them in critical condition. A spokeswoman for the Teaching Hospital in Bratislava has confirmed that a Czech national is among the injured, but not further information has been made available.
