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.
