A gunman was killed after opening fire at the FSB headquarters (Intelligence Service) in Moscow. Some Russian media identified the attacker, who turned out to be a firearms enthusiast without any obvious signs of radicalism. The attack took place around 6 P.M. local time outside the iconic FSB building at Lubyanka Square, some 10 minutes on foot from the Kremlin. The identity of the gunman, as well as the nature of the incident, still remains unclear, RT reported.
The gunman dressed in all-black gear with a backpack can be seen shooting from a rifle, supposedly at police or FSB officers, and then apparently getting hit himself. The video shows him crouching and eventually falling to the ground.
Russia’s Health Ministry said one FSB operative died and another one received serious wounds during the shooting. A total of five people are being treated for injuries following the incident, Russia’s Health Ministry said.
