Pawel Adamowicz, the mayor of the Polish city of Gdansk, who was a victim of a knife attack, succumbed to his wounds on Monday, Polish Radio broadcaster reported.

Following the attack, the mayor was taken to a hospital, where he underwent a five-hour-long surgery. Polish President Andrzej Duda said later that he received information, the doctors had managed to restore Adamowicz’s heartbeat.

The suspect, a 27-year-old man, left prison last month after having served a 5.5-year-long term for bank robbery. He is set to undergo a psychiatric examination, prosecutor Krzysztof Sierak told reporters earlier on Monday.

“We believe his mental stability raises doubts. Two psychiatrists will examine him”, Sierak said.

He specified that the Gdansk regional prosecutor had already launched an investigation into the assassination attempt. The suspect’s blood was tested for alcohol and psychotropic drugs, but the prosecution has not received the results of the analysis yet.
