NALCHIK, January 15. /TASS/. Two gunmen have been killed in a special operation in Nalchik, the capital city of Russia’s North Caucasian republic of Kabardino-Balkaria, a source in the republic’s law enforcement agencies told TASS on Friday.
"Two gunmen have been killed in a special operation in Nalchik," the source said.
According to earlier reports, the mother of one of the gunmen was evacuated from the private house where law enforcers had blocked the gunmen.
Meanwhile, a spokesman for the National Anti-terrorism Committee told TASS one gunman was blocked in the house. "Kabardino-Balkaria’s law enforcement agencies received information that an armed person suspected of involvement in terrorist activities might be in a private house in Nalchik’s Tsiolkovsky Street," the spokesman said.
Police and security officers blocked the house and cordoned off adjacent area. "The counter-terrorist regime was imposed at 16:25 Moscow time to prevent terrorist attacks and to ensure people’s security," the spokesman for the headquarters of the operation said. "People from neighboring houses were evacuated."
"Police demanded the gunman surrender arms. After talks, he agreed to release his mother from the house. The woman also tried to talk him into surrendering. Instead, he opened gunfire at the law enforcers. It is planned to finish the active phase of the special operation in the daytime," the spokesman said.
