MOSCOW, December 16. /TASS/. Ex-candidate for parliamentary deputy of the Russian North Caucasus republic of Dagestan, Mukhtar Medzhidov, has been killed in downtown Moscow, a law enforcement source told TASS on Wednesday.
"The identity of the person killed on Solyanka Street has been recognized: it was Mukhtar Medzhidov, born in 1980," the source said, adding that Medzhidov was a former candidate for Dagestani lawmakers.
Earlier, a source told TASS that, preliminarily, a conflict occurred between two men. As a result of shooting, one was killed on the spot and the other escaped inside a black foreign-made car. The killed person had a TT handgun in his hand.
