The gunman fired an automatic weapon from a moving vehicle near a village 60km (37 miles) south of Belgrade.

The interior ministry said the suspect was arrested after "an extensive search".

It comes after a boy killed nine people at a Belgrade school on Wednesday, Serbia's worst shooting in years.

Police announced the latest arrest around 08:40 local time (07:40 BST) on Friday. The suspect - who has only been identified by his initials UB - was detained near the city of Kragujevac, the interior ministry said.
