ICR looking into incident with policeman who shot prisoner near Arkhangelsk
Law enforcement authorities inspect the incident involving the use of service weapon against a prisoner of one of the colonies in the Velsk District of the Arkhangelsk region.
According to the regional ICR, on the last Wednesday, October 12, on the route Velsk – Pakshenga, previously convicted 39-year-old bus driver, evading from imprisonment for the use of violence against a representative of authority, ignored the repeated demands of a police officer to stop the bus and surrender. As a result, the police had to open fire on the bus' wheels to stop the vehicle. There was no passengers inside.
The police managed to stop the bus, but the driver was able to escape into the woods. Searching the area, guards of the order discovered the fugitive. One of the policemen made warning shots into the air and then shot the convict in the leg, because the latter attacked the police officer with a screwdriver.
The wounded man had received the necessary medical care, after which he was transferred to the Velsk district branch of the Federal Penitentiary Service Administration in the Arkhangelsk region.
The pre-investigation check of the incident is currently conducted. Procedural decision will be adopted upon its results.
