PRAGUE – The Czech Republic is honoring the victims of last week's deadly shooting attack in a small town restaurant.
On Feb 24, a gunman entered the Druzba, or "Friendship," restaurant in the southeastern town of Uhersky Brod and opened fire during lunchtime, killing eight and seriously wounding a woman before he fatally shot himself.
Police identified the gunman as a 63-year-old local man who had no criminal record and had a gun license. A motive hasn't yet been determined, but authorities ruled out terrorism.
Sirens wailed all across the country and bells tolled for two minutes and 20 seconds at noon Thursday to commemorate the largest number of Czechs ever killed in a shooting attack.
