Father Slays Son's Suspected Killer Outside Courthouse

A bereaved father took justice into his own hands outside of a Moscow region courthouse Tuesday, killing the man suspected of murdering his son two years ago, the Investigative Committee said.

The 54-year-old father fired at least three rounds from a hunting rifle into the 29-year-old suspect's head as he was leaving a courthouse after a hearing in the town of Orekhovo-Zuyevo, the committee said in a statement on its web site.

The gunman was detained immediately, and an investigation has been opened.

Relatives of the slain man have promised to retaliate, Business FM radio reported.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
