At least eight people have been killed and 13 injured in a drive-by style shooting in Serbia as police hunt for the suspect, state TV reported.

The attacker used an automatic weapon to shoot randomly at people near the town of Mladenovac, some 50km south of the capital Belgrade, the Radio Television of Serbia (RTS) said.

Police were looking for the 21-year-old suspect who fled after the attack, it added.

It is the second mass killing in Serbia in two days.

Serbian Interior Minister Bratislav Gasic called the shooting “a terrorist act”, the report said. Special police and helicopter units have been sent to the region as well as ambulances, it added.

No other details were immediately available, and police had not issued any statements.

On Wednesday, a 13-year-old boy used his father’s guns in a school shooting rampage that killed eight of his schoolmates and a school guard in Belgrade.
