Another incident was reported in Skopje on Thursday evening, when a likely traffic accident escalated into a gunfight. A Golf car with two men on board slammed into a car carrying three men, at high speed, at an intersection in Madzari, in the eastern parts of Skopje.

Shortly after the collision, another vehicle carrying two more men arrived at the scene. The driver of the Golf and the driver of the second vehicle opened fire on the vehicle they initially crashed into.

A 50 year old man, the brother of the driver, was injured in the attack. His 28 year old son returned fire. The police was able to detain one of the attackers and is now investigating whether the incident was a traffic accident or a planned assault.
