KOSOVSKA MITROVICA -- A Serb man was shot and killed while two others were wounded in the village of Dobruša near the town of Peć in Kosovo on Thursday.
The two injured men were transported with police escort to the hospital in the Serb, northern part of the town of Kosovska Mitrovica.
The murder victim has been identified as Miško Komatina, while Dejan Bogićević and Draško Ojdanić were wounded, the hospital said.
Ojdanić spoke to reporters there and explained the three were in Dobruša to visit the land owned by the victim, where they found an ethnic Albanian who had usurped it.
"After a short conversation, the Albanian said he had to do something and would be back soon. He went to his vehicle, took out a rifle, and started to shoot," Ojdanić said.
Previously, reports said the Serbs were attacked by an ethnic Albanian who tried to force them into selling their land to him.
Kosovo police, KPS, said they were investigating the case, but have confirmed that the killer is an ethnic Albanian from the village of Lukaci in the Istok municipality.
The village where the attack happened is located south of the Ibar River, where Serbs live in isolated enclaves.
The shooting took place on the same day when NATO forces in the province, KFOR, started forcefully removing barricades put up by Serbs in northern Kosovo.
