As the Zagreb police confirmed for Večernji list, they received a shooting report today, January 6, 2020, at 1:50 pm. As they say, someone shot at a residential building in Dubrava, in which, they explain, one adult was injured.
It is not yet known how old the injured person is, nor what the injuries are. The injured man was transported to the Clinical Hospital Center Zagreb, where he is being treated.
A part of the Južna Street in Dubrava where the shooting took place is currently blocked, and the police are on the ground. They have begun conducting an inspection and a criminal investigation to determine all the circumstances of the incident.
Južna Street becomes impassable, and the crowds are forming. Neighbors have come out to their windows and balconies and are waiting for further developments.
“Everything was calm, and then suddenly a shot was heard,” neighbors told Večernji List.
Although the police have been warning for days that the use of pyrotechnics and firearms during the Christmas and New Year holidays can be fatal, their warnings do not fall on fertile ground. During New Year’s Eve, five people were seriously injured due to the unprofessional handling of pyrotechnics and firearms. Some of them had their fingers amputated due to firecracker explosions.
Police later criminally reported several people across the country for firing firearms during the Christmas and New Year celebrations, recording it and posting the footage on social media. The investigation will show whether the shooting in Dubrava was the product of an inappropriate celebration of today’s Three Kings holiday or something else.
More information about the incident will be known after the investigation finishes.
