Earlier in the day Zdenko S. stabbed the 21-year-old son of the 47-year-old man, who later died in the hospital, the SITA newswire reported.

“The police have launched an investigation of a very serious crime of an attempted murder, a crime of restriction of personal freedom, for which an offender, if found guilty, might face imprisonment of 15 to 20 years,” said spokesperson for the regional police in Nitra, Božena Bruchterová, as quoted by SITA.

The police are also investigating the motives behind the tragedy.

The incident took place in a house on Rímska Street in Šaľa, where the family of the 47-year-old man lives. A 29-year-old man entered the house and stabbed a young man in the neck, chest and legs. After witnessing the attack, the victim's mother jumped out of the window and broke her leg. The boy’s father later followed the 29-year-old and shot him in the leg. He now faces prosecution for mayhem, SITA reported.
