BREAKING: Four killed when gunman opens fire in Russian shopping mall
Four people have been killed in a deadly shooting at a shopping center in Russia.
A man opened fire at a shopping mall in the southern Russian city of Krymsk, Russian state news agencies have reported, citing local law enforcement agencies and the prosecutor’s office.
Russia’s TASS news agency said the gunman was among the four dead.
Footage circulating on social media shows a man firing a gun as he walks past parked cars. The man fires several shots before firing at close range at someone lying on the ground.
Another video appears to show the same man firing more shots down a street before getting into a gray car.
Krymsk is a small city in Russia’s southern Krasnodar region, near the Crimean peninsula, which Russia unilaterally annexed from Ukraine in 2014.
