MOSCOW, May 29 (Itar-Tass) — City police detained a Dagestan native suspected of involvement in the attack on the son of diseased State Duma lawmaker Nadirshakh Khachilayev and his friend.
An unidentified man attacked Murtuza Khachilayev and his friend in Balaklavsky Prospekt /Avenue/ overnight to May 24. The man fired several shots at the young people and fled. The wounded youngsters were hospitalized. Khachilayev's friend died without regaining consciousness, a law-enforcement officer told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
