NALCHIK, November 14 (Itar-Tass) — An armed group has attacked a building housing police headquarters in Volny Aul Street in Nalchik on Monday. A policeman has been killed and another one was seriously wounded in the incident, the Investigative Committee (SK) department for Kabardino-Balkaria told Itar-Tass. The police building was attacked presumably by three gunmen at half past noon Moscow time Monday, preliminary reports said.

A local police inspector, the 33-year-old Khasan Kushkhov, was killed on the spot. He had a wife and three children. The other police officer wounded in the incident was hospitalized in grave condition, a source from the joint information center of Kabardino-Balkaria's law enforcers told Itar-Tass.

Six cartridge shells caliber 9 mm and five cartridge shells to TT pistol caliber 7.62 mm were found on the scene. The gunmen escaped presumably in a VAZ-21099 or a VAZ-2115 car of silver color with a taxi identification mark.

Following the armed incident in the Volny Aul residential district, all roads running out of the city have been blocked. Police have put emergency capture plans code-named Vulkan-3 and Perekhvat into effect. Traffic police have tightened control on roads.
