On December 21, 2023, a shocking and tragic incident occurred at Charles University in Prague, when student David Kozak, 24, carried out a deadly shooting, killing 14 people and 30 people were injured, before taking their own lives.

David Kozak, an award-winning history student and art enthusiast, first shot his father in a town outside Prague before continuing his rampage in college. The motive behind the horrific act remains unclear, but investigations have uncovered disturbing details from Kozak’s diary that suggest premeditation.

A Czech police statement confirmed that Kozak left behind a diary detailing his intentions regarding the shooting. His cold words, “Let me introduce myself,” were followed by clear descriptions of the plan to carry out the massacre. He also expressed his desire to “kill people” and “become crazy” on the Telegram channel.

The aftermath of the shooting has left the community reeling and grieving. The university campus, usually bustling with students, was a somber scene as students, faculty and staff tried to come to terms with the tragedy.

News of the horrific incident shocked the community. Kozak’s friends and acquaintances are trying to reconcile the image of the quiet, talented student they know with the perpetrator of such a horrific act.

This devastating event has highlighted the urgent need to improve mental health services and support systems in educational institutions. It also raises questions about the role of social media platforms in monitoring and flagging harmful content.

As investigations continue, we mourn the loss of life and extend our deepest condolences to the families of the victims and the Charles University community.
