Serbian suspect in shooting dies
BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — The Serbian veteran suspected of killing 13 people in a shooting rampage and then turning the gun on himself and his wife died Thursday, hospital officials said.
Ljubisa Bogdanovic, 60, died from head wounds, Belgrade Emergency Hospital said. His wife Javorka Bogdanovic, 60, was recovering from surgery and her condition is serious but stable.
Bogdanovic went on a pre-dawn, house-to-house rampage Tuesday in a village near Belgrade, including killing his mother, his son and a 2-year-old cousin, police say.
Authorities are searching for motives in the worst peacetime shooting rampage in Serbia. Bogdanovic had no criminal record or history of mental illness. He fought in the Balkan wars in the 1990s and lost his job a year ago at a wood processing factory.
Funerals for the victims were held today in the village.
