MOSCOW, September 25 (Itar-Tass) - A warlord of a major gang was killed in the Russian North Caucasian Republic of Dagestan.
Two passengers from a car VAZ-2114 opened fire from automatic firearms at law enforcers in retaliation to the demand to stop at 21:30 Moscow time on Tuesday on the road leading from Makhachkala, Dagestan’s capital, the National Anti-Terrorism Committee (NAK) told Itar-Tass. The gunmen were killed in the exchange of fire.
“As a result of preliminary investigation they were identified as a warlord of the so-called Kadar gang and a member of the gang,” a NAK source said.
“According to the reports from the operations headquarters of the National Anti-Terrorism Committee in Dagestan, the killed bandits are involved in many crimes, including massive extortions from business people, attempts on the life of law enforcers and murders of civilians,” the NAK source noted.
Two grenades, a Kalashnikov assault rifle and ammunition were found at the crime scene. The search continues for accomplices of the killed bandits.
