At least 11 people were killed, including two children, in a deadly mass shooting in Montenegro's southern city of Cetinje on Friday, according to state media RTCG.
According to Montenegrin Police Chief Zoran Brđanin, the suspected shooter first attacked a family that was living in his house as tenants.
"He killed two children, 8 and 11 years old, using a hunting rifle, and injured their mother, who later succumbed to her wounds in a medical facility," Brđanin said.

"He then went out in the street and used the same rifle to shoot other residents of this settlement."
A witness told RTCG that the shooter "indiscriminately shot people as he walked through the street."
Authorities say they have identified the attacker -- said to be a 34-year-old man - and that his rampage was brought to an end when he was shot dead by a civilian.
