According to Radio Gorazdevac, the incident happened when local ethnic Albanians reported that a group of Serbs who gathered to celebrate the feast of the Holy Trinity, was "provoking them with a Serbian flag."

According to unconfirmed reports, a fight broke out as the Kosovo police were stopping the cars with the Serbs, who came to the village for the celebrations at the foundations of the Serbian Orthodox Church of the Holy Trinity in Petric.

The same reports said that "two police officers were injured and Serbs beaten" and that six Serbs were also taken into custody.

The church, built in Donji Petric in 1993, was mined and destroyed in 1999. There used to be around 60 Serb households in the village where only one elderly Serb woman, Kata Grujic, remained - to become the target of " frequent robberies and assaults."

The return process started 11 years later when six houses were built in the village, according to the radio station, based in the Serb enclave of Gorazdevac.
