Shepherd's Rampage

IRKUTSK, Eastern Siberia () -- An enraged, drunken shepherd with a gun rode through a Siberian village on horseback, killing four people and wounding six, Itar-Tass reported.


When the carnage was done, the man hanged himself with his horse's bridle, Itar-Tass said Sunday.


The shootings occurred Saturday in the village of Balagansk, about 200 kilometers north of Irkutsk in eastern Siberia. Itar-Tass said the shepherd had been quarreling with drinking buddies and apparently decided to vent his anger.
