Moscow: At least six unidentified gunmen
opened fire on security guards at a provincial food market in
the southern Russian city of Samara on Saturday, killing at least
two people and wounding at least five, investigators said.
The attackers arrived at the market in three cars and
opened fire before fleeing, Russia`s Investigative Committee
said in a statement.
Five people were hospitalised, it said.
Even the smallest of Russian enterprises employs
security guards, who are often in the line of fire when
business disputes turn violent. State television reported the
Samara market was changing ownership.
Russian news agencies earlier reported 14 had been
hurt in the shooting.
