The Vantaa District Court has referred for psychiatric evaluation the main suspect in a shooting incident at a Vantaa restaurant in early December.

Police said that the court decided Friday to send the man for an assessment, based on a request from his assistant.

The 64-year-old is suspected of using a licensed firearm to shoot three men aged 53, 39 and 30 in early December at a restaurant known as Pub Kärry located in Nuijatie in Vantaa.

Police say that the man claimed that he did not remember details of the incident and that they have so far not been able to determine a motive for the deed.

At the time of the shooting investigators said that there had been no indication of any kind of disagreement or dispute.
