Russian Shoots Guy In Face On Subway; Just Another Day In Russia

 

DailyMail: A security camera has captured a suspected racist shooting on the Moscow metro as two men armed with handguns attacked a dark-skinned passenger. Two men sit on the underground train in the Russian capital when a fellow passenger travelling in the same carriage attracts their attention. One of the attackers nods to the other, whispers something, and then both draw guns in the vicious assault which was caught on footage obtained by Life News, a major Russian media outlet. The younger one uses a ‘traumatic hand gun’ to shoot into the abdomen of Khashim Latipov, 30, from Dagestan, a region in the Caucasus region of southern Russia. He kicks him and shoots again, putting the gun at the man’s head, as other passengers flee to the far end of the carriage. The two men then turn their backs on the victim but keep threatening their victim with guns until they flee the train at Nagornaya station. Faces of both attackers are caught by the security camera in the November 17 incident. Miraculously, Lapitov survived the attack but is seriously wounded. ‘The IDs of the shooters are not known yet, we are searching for them,’ a law enforcement source told Life News. ‘The victim was taken to the hospital, with one bullet in his jaw and serious damage to his face.’

 

Yea those passengers sure did look terrified. Couldn’t be more casual as if this happens twice a day. And what the hell is a ‘traumatic hand gun’ where you can shoot someone and they don’t die? I need me one of those.
