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 municipal police officer, 51-year-old Milan J., who was not on duty at the time, parked his own car in front of the house of a Roma family and then shot dead a 44-year-old man, his 19-year-old son and 24-year-old son-in-law. A 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.
