David Kozak, who opened fire randomly at Charles University in Prague, the capital of Czechia, killing 15 people, shared his plans for the massacre on Telegram.

Prague, the capital of Czechia, one of Europe’s popular tourist destinations, was shaken yesterday by the deadliest attack in its history.

After killing his father in the morning, the university student, identified as David Kozak, went to the Faculty of Fine Arts of Charles University, where he was a student, at around 15.00 noon and opened fire randomly with a sniper rifle from the terrace of the university building.

Police neutralized the 24-year-old attacker, 15 people lost their lives and 24 people were injured, 10 of them seriously.

“I ALWAYS WANTED TO KILL, I KNEW I WOULD BE A MANIAC”

The bloody attack in the heart of Europe was the number one topic in the Western media today. The British Telegraph newspaper described the attacker as an introverted loner who shared his fantasies about mass attacks on the internet.

In a chilling post on Telegram, the 24-year-old wrote that he wanted to organize a school attack and commit suicide. “I always wanted to kill,” he wrote, adding, “I knew I would be a maniac in the future.”

THIS IS HOW STUDENTS TRIED TO PROTECT THEMSELVES

Kozak, who had no criminal record, was a legal gun owner and was interested in weapons, the newspaper wrote, citing the testimonies of students who survived the attack.

Jakob Weizman, who was at the school at 2:55 p.m. when he heard the gunshots, locked himself in a classroom and piled everything he could find in front of the door, including chairs and tables. He was lucky, because just a few minutes after he set up the barricade, someone from outside forced the door.

In another part of the faculty, eight terrified students walked out of the window with their heads bowed, hoping Kozak would not notice them, and lined up on a ledge above the building. The horrific scene could be seen from outside the building.

32-YEAR-OLD SUSPECTED OF KILLING A MAN AND HIS BABY

The British Guardian pointed out that the historic city of Prague is not often associated with violent incidents and emphasized that the locals were shocked.

While police said the attack was not linked to terrorism, Dailymail reported that the attacker is suspected of killing a 32-year-old man and his newborn baby in a forest near Prague.

Police are investigating Kozak’s connection to last week’s murders.
