Student Kills 15, Injures 24 In Deadliest Mass Shooting


LAGOS DECEMBER 21ST (NEWSRANGERS)-At least 15 people have been killed in a shooting in central Prague, according to Czech emergency services.

At least 24 others have been wounded, according to the Czech rescue service.

Police previously said the gunman – a 24-year-old student at the faculty of arts at Charles University in Prague – had been “eliminated”.

His body was found in the university’s philosophy building, according to officials.

Police said the gunman’s father was also found dead in a property in a village outside the city earlier today.

Czech police president Martin Vondrasek said investigators were looking at whether the gunman had been “inspired” by a previous mass shooting in another country, following reports in Czech media that he had posted on social media prior to the attack.

The mass shooting is the deadliest in the modern history of Czechia (formerly the Czech Republic) – the last being in 2019, when six people were killed by a gunman, who later took his own life, in the Ostrava hospital attack.

Prague Mayor Bohuslav Svoboda told Czech television: “We always thought that this was a thing that did not
concern us.

“Now it turns out that, unfortunately, our world is also changing and the problem of the individual gunman is emerging here as well.”
