Police say five people were killed and at least 20 were injured when a man entered a cafe in northern Serbia and sprayed the visitors with automatic gun fire. The suspect was arrested.

The attack occurred at 01:40 a.m. local time Saturday in a village close to the town of Zrenjanin.

A police statement says a man identified only as Z.S. first killed his wife and another woman before randomly shooting at the other occupants of the cafe.

The motives of the shooting were being investigated.
