Authorities Police

A man involved in a traffic accident opened fire as he fled the scene in south-western Estonia, leaving two people dead and at least three others wounded, police said.

The 32-year-old suspect was apprehended yesterday after an extensive police operation near the small town of Lihula, close to where the clash took place, according to a police statement.

Prosecutors say he will face murder charges.

According to police, a motorcyclist at a petrol station had witnessed the suspect’s car colliding with two other cars nearby and noticed that he was about to flee the scene.

The biker then chased the car on the motorway and the suspect shot at him. Police said the biker later died of his wounds.

The suspect also opened fire towards a car carrying a man, a woman and two young children aged three and five. The woman, in her fifties, died of her wounds, while the children were severely injured but are now in a stable condition in hospital, police said.
