Guard shot dead found in Sberbank’s Moscow branch

The body of a 62-year-old security guard was found in the morning at the Sberbank’s branch on the Bolshaya Andronyevskaya Street, Moscow.

The deceased was found by the bank's employees, who came to work in the morning. The man was shot in the back room. Several employees claim that he was killed almost immediately after his shift had started.

The body was sent for medical examination. Police is working at the crime scene. No bank robbery had been reported yet. The motives of the assailants also remain unknown.

Staff members note that the guard was found shot in the back room two hours after his shift had started. It was his colleagues who called law enforcement officers.

In late August, Rossiyskiy Dialog wrote that a desperate businessman Aram Petrosyan captured a Citibank branch in Moscow, its staff locked inside. The man threatened to detonate an unknown explosive device, if the national television refused to show him. When the man saw himself on TV, he released the hostages and surrendered to police. The bomb turned out to be a hoax one.
