A gunman went on a house-to-house killing spree and
shot dead eight neighbors before being beaten to death by survivors in a
small village in Lithuania, police said.
The dead, aged between 17 and
65, were four men and four women.
"It seemed that he wanted to kill everyone in the
village," a police spokesman said of the massacre in Drauchiu in
the Shirvintos region.
Police identified the gunman as Leonard
Zavistanovich, 58, and said his motive was not known.
