Five people were killed in a shooting spree in northeast Moscow in Russia. Hours before the shooting, Dmitry Vinogradov posted his hatred towards mankind on one of Russia’s top social networks, Vkontakte. The gunman entered the warehouse on Chermanskaya Street at about 10 AM on Wednesday November 7, 2012, dressed in camouflage gear and armed with two semi-automatic shotguns, a Saiga and a Benelli. He shot dead three men and two women and injured two others, a male and female, at their desks before giving himself up to security guards. One of the injured died during the night in intensive care, suffering from severe wounds. Vinogradov’s girlfriend was said to be safe.
Police arrested Dmitry Vinogradov, 30, a lawyer at the Rigla pharmaceutical company that owned the warehouse. He was reported to have went on a five day drinking binge after being jilted by a co-worker. On 8 November, Vinogradav apologized in court and pleaded that he had “no other choice”. He also said that he had wanted to kill himself after the massacre, but was prevented from doing so. An investigator said that Vinogradov had been planning the spree since January. Vinogradov believed killing as many things related to humans was the only way to make the world better. Vinogradov was captured on security cameras moments before the shooting began.
