Car Sprayed With Bullets

Unknown assailants fired seven gunshots at the car of Vladimir Boldin, deputy head of the administration of the town of Kotelniki in the Moscow region, but the official escaped unharmed, Interfax reported Friday.

The incident, which took place Thursday in the village of Zagornovo, will likely be classified only as hooliganism, a police source said, adding that no suspects have been identified. Boldin has a broad range of professional responsibilities, including in the real estate sector.
