The Serbian veteran suspected of killing 13 people in a shooting rampage and then turning the gun on himself and his wife died Thursday, hospital officials said, reported ABC News.
Belgrade Emergency Hospital said 60-year-old Ljubisa Bogdanovic died from head wounds. It added that his 60-year-wife Javorka Bogdanovic was recovering from surgery and her condition is serious but stable.
Police say Bogdanovic went on a pre-dawn, house-to-house rampage Tuesday in a village near Belgrade, including killing his mother, his son and a 2-year-old cousin.
Authorities are searching for motives in the worst peacetime shooting rampage in Serbia. Bogdanovic had no criminal record or history of mental illness. He fought in the bloody Balkan wars in the 1990s and lost his job a year ago at a wood processing factory.
Residents of the village of Velika Ivanca, some 50 kilometers (30 miles) southeast of Belgrade, have said Bogdanovic first killed his son and his mother before leaving his home and going house to house, shooting his neighbors. They expressed deep shock, describing the suspect as a quiet and helpful man.
Funerals for the victims are on Friday in the village.
