The police are currently looking for the attackers - according to information received by B92, two persons took part in the incident, and were using a Peugeot 206 with fake license plates when they shot the victim, Dejan Jakovljevic.

The shooting happened at 21:15 hours CET, while 15 minutes later, citizens reported to the police seeing a vehicle on fire on the Sabac-Sremska Mitrovica road.
