Shooter among 11 dead in mass shooting at Prague university

A shooter at a university in Prague, Czech Republic, has been “eliminated” after killing 10 people and injuring two dozen others, according to Czech police and emergency services.

Images circulating on social media showed students barricaded in classrooms and emergency vehicles converging on a square in Prague’s old town. Police announced on X (formerly Twitter) that the shooter was dead, and the school, Charles University, was still in the process of being evacuated. Prague’s emergency response service reported on X that around 25 people were injured, with eleven of them sustaining serious injuries.

This tragic event is a sobering reminder of the importance of campus safety and emergency response protocols. It also underscores the need for ongoing efforts to prevent and address incidents of violence in educational settings.

Charles University, one of the oldest universities in Europe, has a rich history dating back to its founding in 1348. It has been a center of academic and cultural excellence for centuries, and the shooting has shocked the local community and the broader academic world.

Our thoughts are with the victims and their families as they navigate this difficult time. We commend the swift response of the authorities and emergency services in handling the situation and providing support to those affected.
