It has been discovered that a 52-year-old woman was the eighth victim of the shooting rampage in Bratislava’s suburb of Devínska Nová Ves on the morning of Monday, August 30, Slovakia’s Interior Minister Daniel Lipšic told a press conference on Monday afternoon, the TASR newswire reported.

The woman apparently had stepped out onto her balcony at the time of the shooting spree and was shot. Her body was discovered later in the day by her husband.

The gunman, around age 50, killed seven people and wounded at least another nine before killing himself after he was cornered by the police.

The man, who was using a type 58 assault rifle that he illegally possessed, was also carrying two shotguns and a lot of ammunition, said Police Corps President Jaroslav Spišiak at another press conference.
