MOSCOW, April 8. /TASS/. In an incident that is rather rare for the generally safe and quiet Moscow metro, an unknown malefactor shot and injured another man with a non-lethal gun on Friday. A quarrel between the two men broke out when a train was approaching Kaluzhskaya station in the south of the city, a spokesman for the police unit guarding the Moscow metropolitan system told TASS.
"The offender made a getaway from the scene of crime and the injured man was taken to hospital with non-penetrating wounds to the head," said Alexei Myshliayev, the metro spokesman.
Police operatives exempted recordings from CCTV and were trying to establish the malefactor's identity at the time of reporting," he indicated.
Investigators from the Moscow City branch of Russia's Investigations Committee have instituted a criminal case over the incident citing a murder attempt, branch spokeswoman Yuliya Ivanova said.
She said emergency medics evacuated the injured man to a nearby hospital right from the coach.
