Reading Time: < 1 minute

A gunman killed two men in Moscow on Saturday, with Russian authorities confirming one of them was high-ranking police officer from the southern state of Ingushetia, Ibragim Eldzharkiev. The second victim is believed to be Eldzharkiev’s younger brother.

” Eldzharkiyev and his brother were shot and killed on Academician Anokhin Stree in the west of Moscow on Saturday evening. The killer fled the scene in a car.

Eldzharkiev served as chief of Ingushetia’s anti-extremism center. He took office last year after his predecessor, Timur Hamhoev, was convicted of torturing detainees and extortion.
