The incident was reported Monday but it is believed the shooting occurred over the weekend, the Kosovo police (KPS) told Tanjug.

The police determined unknown attackers damaged the windows on a third-floor office but that no one was injured.

The public prosecutor has classified the case as public endangerment, the police said.

Head of the Kosovska Mitrovica District Radenko Nedeljković said the incident is "another is a series of crimes through which the so-called government in Priština is trying to cause unrest and incidents in northern Kosovo."

"We have pointed out several times, and again today in the meeting with UNMIK Head Farid Zarif, that Pristina is in a hurry and the peaceful situation does not suit them," Nedeljković said, adding Priština "needs incidents in order to take further steps."

He appealed to the people to remain calm and not fall for provocations, because "only in a peaceful manner can we realize our goal of surviving in this area as a part of Serbia."
