MOSCOW, December 6 (Itar-Tass) — A district police officer in the Penza region was killed in a hostage-freeing operation on Wednesday night, the Interior Ministry’s press service told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
"A man with a criminal record beat up and drove his wife out of the house. He was in a state of alcoholic intoxication. The woman reported it to police saying her husband had taken his friend and a three-year-old child hostage threatening with a hunting gun. The incident occurred in the town of Kamenka.
"A group of detectives rushed to the scene. When police tried to enter the apartments to start talks, the man fired his gun fatally wounding a district police officer. He was detained after police used tear gas. The hostages were set free unharmed," the Interior Ministry said.
The wounded police officer was rushed to hospital, but he died two hours after surgery.
