The police are looking for one of the leaders of Kuntsevskaya OCG Ivan Shumlyansky (Vanya Odessa) after a shootout at Kuntsevo Cemetery, REN-TV reported referring to his sources in law enforcement agencies. During the conflict at a commemoration for Kuntsevo OCG former leader Alexander Kaligin (Alik), a former member of the Solntsevskaya gang, Igor Belov, was shot. A criminal case was initiated under Art. 105 of the Criminal Code (Murder).
Earlier it became known that the police interrogated a woman who was with Belov at the commemoration and, according to eyewitnesses, tried to prevent a conflict.

From the received wounds (he was shot at the heart and lung), the man died before the ambulance arrived. On the spot, the police found four cartridges.
It was reported that in the past Belov was a member of the Solntsevskaya OCG and was convicted of a series of robberies. According to preliminary information, the killer belonged to the same gang.
