Two arrested after shooting at graveyard

Two men were arrested after a shooting incident at a graveyard in the Moravian town of Opava on Wednesday. The two raided the funeral services office at the cemetery where one of them shot an undertaker, aged 24, in both legs after ordering his colleague to leave the office. The Czech News Agency reported that the gunmen had accused the victim of stealing tens of thousands of crowns from the flat of one of the two’s late father; they said that when the body had been removed the cash had also disappeared.
