In Moscow, a man was detained who opened fire at a bank in Nemansky Proyezd. It is reported by RBC with reference to the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Moscow.
As a result of the incident, no one was injured.
The incident happened the day before, March 27.
“The shooter turned out to be a resident of the Strogino district, born in 1951, who, during a telephone conversation with fraudsters, received information that his personal data was in the public domain through the fault of employees of one of the banks, where the man went to clarify the circumstances, taking with him a pneumatic gun,” the department said.
An investigation has been launched into the incident.
Baza writes that a 72-year-old pensioner started shooting at a Sberbank branch. He, according to the Telegram channel, came to the branch and during a conversation with a bank employee said that he was participating in a “special task” and was talking on the phone with a “police captain”.
At that moment, an unknown person who was talking to the pensioner on the phone told him to shoot, but not at people, but at the ceiling. After the man fired a shot, he was disarmed by another visitor to the department, the channel points out. A few minutes later, the police arrived at the scene of the incident and detained the pensioner. Baza also reports that the scammers persuaded the man to come to the office in order to “catch the criminals who distributed his personal data.”
