Grand Group of Companies head opens fire on Fryazino official
Grigor Agekyan shot at the official from a service gun during the dismantling of illegal advertising structures.
The head of the Grand Group of Companies, Grigor Agekyan, opened fire from a service pistol at the Deputy Head of the Fryazino city Administration, Saipudin Tsakaev. According to the source of Rosbalt, the conflict occurred on November 15, 2016. On this day, the First Deputy Head of the City Administration and employees of the department of municipal control arrived to the Sputnik shopping mall to supervise the dismantling of illegal advertising structures. These constructions belonged to Grand GC, one of its core areas being the placement of outdoor advertising. Agekyan also arrived there, when workers started to dismantle the billboards.
The businessman immediately began to threaten the officials and his bodyguards attacked the employees of the municipality. Agekyan himself opened fire from a service pistol, and then tried to strike a few blows against the Fryazino official.
At the moment, the MIA department in the Shchelkovo district is running pre-investigation checks into the incident.
It is worth reminding that this was not the only case of an attack on officials by business representatives. In October 2015, Mr Amiran Georgadze entered the Administration building of the Krasnogorsk municipal district of the Moscow region, where he cold-bloodedly shot First Deputy Head of the Krasnogorsk district Yuri Karaulov and CEO of Krasnogorsk Electric Networks Enterprise Georgy Kotlyarenko. Later, law enforcers found out that there had been two more victims of the same entrepreneur — his business partner Tristan Zakaidze and guard of the editorial staff of Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper Konstantin Smyslov, who had been an accidental witness. A few days later, Georgadze was found dead in a house in the village of Timoshkino. According to the official version, the businessman committed suicide.
