State TV RTCG reported the gunman wounded another six people, including a policeman, in the city’s Medovina neighborhood near the seat of the former royal government.

The city is 22 miles west of Podogrica, the capital of the small Balkan nation.

RTCG, quoting witnesses, said the attacker was randomly shooting at people walking in the street, including at children.

Four of the wounded were transferred to a hospital in Cetinje while two others with serious wounds were sent to the Clinical Center in Podgorica.

The site of the attack was blocked off by police.

Police still have not issued an official statement about the attack.

The incident marks the deadliest shooting in the Adriatic nation in decades.

Montenegro is famed for its picturesque beaches framed by nearby mountains that have long been a draw for tourists.

The shooting comes as the country is in the full throes of its tourism high season.
