MOSCOW, June 11 (Itar-Tass) - The investigation in the criminal case against Sergei Pomazun, who is accused of murder of six people in Belgorod, is completed, spokesman for the Russian Investigative Committee Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“The Main Investigation Department of the Russian Investigative Committee has finalized the investigation in the criminal case against Sergei Pomazun. He faced the final accusation of murder of two and more people, including an underage child, with hooligan motives in order to conceal another crime; the illegal circulation of weapons; the stealing of weapons and ammunition; the stealing of ammunition that was committed with the use of violence dangerous for the life and health; the attempt on the life of a law enforcer,” Markin underlined.
On April 22, Sergei Pomazun, who was dubbed by the media “Belgorod shooter,” stole his father’s gun and BMW X5 and came to the gun store “Okhota” (“Hunting”) in the centre of the city, in order to steal weapons, the investigators believe. In the store he fired at two sales assistants and a visitor. After that, stealing weapons Pomazun came out of the store and shot three other people who were walking by.
During the detention Pomazun injured a police officer with a knife.
