9 Dead in Czech Shooting

At least nine people were reported killed in a shooting in the eastern Czech Republic town of Uhersky Brod, local reports and officials said.
“According to our information, there are nine dead on the spot,” Czech television channel Ceska Televize said.
An armed man burst into a restaurant around lunchtime, opening fire, according to Czech state television, BBC reported.
The gunman is also reported to be dead following the attack, according to Czech officials. The motive for the shooting is unclear. Some 20 people were thought to have been in the restaurant at the time.
The Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka said he is shocked by the attack, according to local media. Milan Chovanec, the interior minister, said he was on his way to the scene.
Although police confirmed the shooting in Uhersky Brod, about 300km from the capital Prague, they have yet to officially comment on the death toll.
The mayor of Uhersky Brod told Czech television that the suspect, who was probably wielding two weapons, was a local man aged around 60.
