School principal shoots himself

A principal of a school in the town of Bor near Tachov in the Plzeň region has shot himself, the iDnes news website reported on Wednesday afternoon. According to the police spokesperson it was most likely a suicide, since the thirty-five-year-old man allegedly left a letter. The school where he was from had made it into the headlines last year, when one of its teachers and a former regional head of the Civic Democratic Party Vladimír Dub was given a four-year suspended sentence for having sexual relations with an underage student.
