No, he was in Sarajevo which was in the Austrian Empire. The killer was an agent of the Black Hand, a group within the Serbian government aiming to take down Austria and take their Serbian land. Yugoslavia didn't exist until after the war. Other than that, it's basically right.

Basically, because the allies were jealous of how good Germany was at winning the war, and how naïve the Weimar republic was. The Weimar republic was the first democratic German nation, formed after a minor revolution in which the German emperor was thrown off and a democracy was installed.

For more detail, we will have to dive into some complications during the first World War and a few key situations before that.

Austria-Hungary had an alliance with the German Empire, for both nations were Germanic in nature, and there was a risk due to the alliance with, well, the allies. Why did the allies form an alliance? Same reason: common fear and polarization. But the main reason was an excuse for inter-European conquest. Anyway, all mayor European countries and armies were allied together in a complicated web which drew all countries into the war which would inevitably unfold.

Though the spark which started the first World War is commonly known, it is not important. Its location laid in a dispute between Serbia and Austria-Hungary. Quick escalations (mostly due to unreasonable Austrian demands) led to an official declaration of war. However, Serbia was the first to call upon the alliance web, drawing in the Russian Empire. Austria was powerful, but incapable of handling Russia alone, so they drew in Germany. Russia couldn't handle both Germanic empires, so they drew the UK and France, and this unfolding of the alliances eventually led to the Allies v.s. the Axis.

Now, two empires broke apart during the War. Firstly, Russia, forming into the Soviet Union in 1917. The German east front mostly cleared, many forces were transported to the west front, where the US, France and the UK were stuck in stalemate with the Germans. Austria-Hungary was pretty much Yugoslavia v.s. Hungary at the moment.

However, the German Emperor grew more and more unpopular as he forced his people further and further in an attempt to break the wall (CONT in #6)
