Gunman opens fire on bus in Kosovo, killing 3, wounding 1
An unidentified gunman opened fire on a bus carrying teenagers in western Kosovo, killing three people and injuring another, police and media reports said.
Fadil Gashi, police spokesman in the nearby city of Peja, said the bus came under attack in Gllogjan, 90 km (55 miles) west of the capital Pristina at about 1800 GMT Friday. The driver died immediately and three teenagers were taken to a hospital where two of them died.
Gashi did not provide a motive of the attack, saying it was “too early” in the investigation.
“There is no reason to believe it was a terrorist act,'' Elshani later said.
President Vjosa Osmani called the attack “shocking” and urged law enforcement officials to find the perpetrators as quickly as possible.
“The attack against the bus with students is a blow to our public order and security. Citizen security is a priority and we shall not withdraw in fulfilling such a mission,” she wrote in her Facebook page.
