MAKHACHKALA, December 30. /TASS/. One person was killed and 10 more injured in a shoot-out in Derbent in Russia’s North Caucasus region of Dagestan at night, a source in law enforcement agencies told TASS on Wednesday.
"The incident took place on the observation platform of the Naryn-Kala fortress. Among those injured are both civilians and military. Sixty-seven cartridges of various caliber were found at the site. The circumstances of the incident are being investigated," the source said.
According to investigators, around 20 people gathered on the observation platform in Derbent at 11:30pm on Tuesday. They arrived to the site in small groups with the aim of resting and observing the city.
