An unresolved financial dispute was reported to be the most likely reason why a 56-year-old man shot dead three of his former associates at a company headquarters in the central Slovak town of Zvolen (Banská Bystrica Region) on Thursday, November 22.

The TASR newswire reported that the man, a former legal representative of a company called TC Trade and identified by police only as Ivan H., turned up at the company's headquarters in the morning. He became embroiled in a heated verbal exchange with three company executives before pulling out a gun and opening fire on them at around 8:20. The fatalities included a man and his son, aged 62 and 36, respectively, and another man aged 45.

The incident was reported to the police by the wife of the youngest victim, who was in an adjoining office at the time. Ivan H. allowed police officers to arrest him at the scene without a struggle. The assailant had held the gun legally since January this year. He was an executive at TC Trade for ten years until February this year.
