The investigator also filed a proposal for a lawsuit of premeditated murder, illegal possession of a firearm and violation of privacy, spokesperson for the Police Corps Presidium Andrea Dobiášová told TASR.

The shooting took place on June 16, 2012, shortly after 10:00. A local police officer, 51-year-old Milan J., who was not on duty at the time, parked his personal car in front of the house of a Roma family and shot to death a 44-year-old man, his 19-year-old son and 24-year-old son-in-law. The second son was shot in the lung and the son’s wife was shot in the leg.

The police located the shooter about an hour later sitting in front of the house of Hurbanovo’s mayor Margita Zemková, TASR wrote.
