    The 41-year-old bus driver was taken to Tuzla hospital with severe injuries.
     
    "He suffered severe gun wounds and is currently undergoing surgery but his life is not in danger," Amra Odobasic, a hospital spokeswoman, said.
     
    Petrovic's neighbours said he had behaved strangely and suffered from depression.
