Bratislava: A man in Bratislava killed two men and seriously injured a waitress near a popular gay pub in the city centre on Wednesday evening.

Investigators have identified the perpetrator, who is dead, police said in a Facebook post. The two men were shot in front of a pub which is popular among the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex (LGBTI) community. The pub describes itself as a “lovely gay bar in Bratislava centre.”

The shooter confessed to the crime online before presumably killing himself, Sme.sk news site reported. The 19-year-old posted hate messages about sexual minorities and a sort of manifesto that contained homophobic and neo-Nazi sentiments on Twitter and another network, the report said. By morning, the two accounts were no longer accessible. Police were not initially willing to confirm the two accounts belonged to the man, or that he was the source of the hate speech, saying investigations are ongoing.(dpa)
