Mass slaying in Serbia leaves police, residents baffled

13 gunned down; suspect shoots wife and himself

VELIKA IVANCA, Serbia — He went from house to house in the village at dawn, cold-bloodedly gunning down his mother, his son, a 2-year-old cousin, and 10 other neighbors. Terrified residents said that if a police patrol car hadn’t shown up, they all would have been dead.

Police said they know of no motive yet in the carnage Tuesday that left six women, six men, and a child dead in Velika Ivanca, a Serbian village 30 miles southeast of Belgrade.
