Ivan Kalukov, 67, has passed away overnight in Sofia's Military Medical Academy from self-inflicted gunshot wounds.

Two persons, a 26-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman, are dead and two have been gravely wounded during a shooting that resulted from a quarrel amongst neighbors in Bulgarian capital Sofia.

The wounded are in Sofia's emergency Pirogov hospital and doctors are fighting for their lives.

Kalukov is a former army officer.

The incident was sparked Monday by an argument between him and a Roma family living in a trailer near his house.

The Roma have set a tire ablaze to celebrate the beginning of Easter Lent by following the rite of jumping over fire, which had irritated Kalukov. He attacked Kiril, 26, hitting him with a hubcap.

Kalukov then returned inside his house only to come back moments later, burst in the trailer and start shooting haphazardly, murdering Kiril on the spot and injuring three more. One of them passed in the hospital later.

Upon returning home, the attacker shot at himself, and was also hospitalized in critical condition. Doctors were unable to save his live.
