|2015 Sarajevo shooting|
|Location||Rajlovac, Bosnia and Herzegovina|
18–19 November 2015 |
c. 19:30 (CET)
|Deaths||3 (including the perpetrator)|
On 18 November 2015, a man killed two Bosnian soldiers in the Sarajevo suburb Rajlovac. Witnesses say the man walked into a betting shop and shot and killed the two soldiers, before exiting and firing on a bus, causing flying glass to injure the driver and two passengers. Another soldier and a female employee of the shop were wounded. The shooter reportedly wore a headband with Arabic writings on it and shouted "Allahu akbar" during the attack. After a manhunt, police cornered the attacker in the building where he lived early on 19 November, whereupon the attacker committed suicide by detonating two explosives. Omeragic's neighbours said he had recently become an adherent of the ultra-conservative Salafi Muslim movement. Regional police directorate chief Dragan Lukac said it was too early to say whether the attack was an act of terrorism or simply murder.
The attacker was identified as Enes Omeragić.
