Shooting in a Czech restaurant – level 1

02-03-2015 07:00

A man comes to a restaurant. It is lunch time. There are twenty people in the restaurant. The man has two guns. He begins to shoot the guns.

He kills eight people. He injures more people. After this, he kills himself. The man was around 60 years old. He was mentally unstable.

This happened in the Czech Republic. It is a country in Central Europe. This was not a terror attack.

Difficult words: injure (to hurt people), was (the past tense of “is”), mentally unstable (his mind was not OK).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
