Gunman kills six at Czech hospital

A gunman killed himself yesterday after shooting dead six patients at a hospital in the eastern Czech city of Ostrava, in what the premier has called “an immense tragedy”.

The attacker gunned down people at close range at the trauma ward of the Faculty Hospital in Ostrava, a steel hub located some 300 kilometres east of Prague.

Four men and two women died during the assault, which police said lasted only a few seconds.

Two other people were seriously wounded. A third person sustained light injuries.

Police said they had not yet determined what drove the 42-year-old to launch the attack but reports suggested he was mentally unstable.
