MOSCOW, September 14 (Itar-Tass) — A policeman had to use firearms against a Yakutian resident who fired a hunting gun at people. The resident died.
An inquiry is launched into the incident, the Russian Interior Ministry's press service told Itar-Tass.
On Thursday, at 20:30, a woman reported to police in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) that her 42-year-old son armed with a shotgun closed himself in a flat. The man was in a drunken state. Some minutes before, his son-in-law attempted to calm him, but the man in the flat fired through the door. The shot went a few centimetres above the head of the man who attempted to calm the rowdy, a police source said.
Policemen and investigators arrived at the site. To ensure safety of people, policemen cordoned the area and evacuated some of the residents from the apartment building.
The policemen tried to calm the man and persuade him to lay down the gun. However, he ignored their orders. The man rushed out to the staircase and aimed his gun at the policemen.
Taking into consideration the fact that the man already used the gun twice and that he was in an inadequate and aggressive state, one of the policemen decided to use the arms, the source said.
The man with an abdomen wound was taken to hospital. He died a few hours later.
The materials of the case are referred to the Investigation Committee's department in the republic, the source said.
