Dalibor Gjuric, inmate at the prison in the Montenegrin city of Kotor sentenced as part of a high profile cocaine running gang, was killed by a sniper as he was exercising in the prison yard on Thursday afternoon.
The killer hid on a hill overlooking the Spuzh prison, and shot Gjuric who died in hospital where he was rushed for treatment. The bullet went through a wire fence and hit him in the chest. Gjuric had survived several earlier assassination attempts. Police found a burning Skoda vehicle with Italian license plates near the prison, and believes it was used by the mafia sniper.
It’s believed that a dozen of mafia killings related to Kotor based gangs are related to a 2014 incident in which 200 kilograms of cocaine were stolen in Spain.
