MOSCOW, June 15 (Itar-Tass) —— An unknown shooter broke a passenger bus window in northwestern Moscow on Friday. No one is hurt, the city police told Itar-Tass.
The driver of a bus on route 96 reported at 2:45 p.m. Moscow time that the bus came under an air gun attack near 5, Vilis Latsis Street. The bus’ window was smashed. Detectives and forensic experts are examining the damaged bus. A hooliganism case may be opened.
There had been four air gun attacks in Moscow since the beginning of this week. Three passenger buses were attacked at the 74th kilometer of the Moscow Circular Road on Thursday evening. Windows were smashed but no one was injured.
The day before a trolley bus was attacked by an air gun shooter on Narodnogo Opolcheniya Street. A passenger cut a hand on the broken window glass. A vandalism case (Article 214 of the Russian Criminal Code) was opened.
There have been air gun attacks in residential areas, including children’s playgrounds, before.
The police said air guns had become popular as a weapon of amusement, self-defense and hunting. Such weapons are easily accessible: they are sold without permits and do not require registration in Russia. Meanwhile, the speed of bullets or steel balls reaches 100-150 meters per second, which is sufficient for smashing a window or seriously injuring a person.
