At least eight people were killed and 13 others wounded in a shooting in Serbian villages near the town of Mladenovac, some 60 km south of Belgrade, local media reported on Friday.

According to RTS, Serbia’s public broadcaster, the shooter, reportedly a 21-year-old man, used an automatic weapon to fire into a crowd from a moving car.

The attacker opened fire in one village, and continued firing in a neighboring village before fleeing.

A heavy police presence was deployed and ambulances rushed to the scene.
