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.
In early November 2017, Basmanny Court of Moscow has satisfied the motion brought by the Main Investigations Directorate in the City of Moscow of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation (ICR) and remanded Aleksander Shukyurov, Director of the Capital Renovation Directorate State Budgetary Institution of Moscow, in custody. The head of the institution subordinate to the Department of Capital Renovation of the City of Moscow that had acted as the client in tenders worth dozens of billions of rubles is suspected of swindling on an especially large scale.
