Gunmen Kill 3 in Southern Moscow Office

Three people have been shot dead and one wounded in a commercial office in southern Moscow following an attack by two gunmen armed with machine guns, police said Wednesday.


Midday Tuesday, two men entered an office on Litovsky Bulvar and opened fire on people inside, and then walked away leaving their weapons behind, according to city police reports.


Witnesses, shocked by the brutality of the attack, did not call the police until several minutes later, an official at the local police station said.


A local police officer said the three victims, who have not yet been identified by police, were shot in the office and in the corridors. The wounded person was taken to hospital with an injured eye and arm.
