Lithuanian Massacre

VILNIUS, Lithuania -- A man went on a house-to-house killing spree and shot dead eight neighbors before he was beaten to death by survivors in a small village in Lithuania, police said Monday.

The dead, aged from 17 to 65, were four men and four women.

"It seemed that he wanted to kill everyone in the village," said police inspector Cheslovas Girdzishka, giving details of the massacre in Drauchiu in the Shirvintos region some 50 kilometers north of the capital, Vilnius.

Girdzishka named the gunman as Leonard Zavistanovich, 58, and said his motive was not known.
