Russian Kills Neighbor Over Loud Music

Police near Moscow are looking for a gunman suspected of killing a young man over a noisy party in his yard, Russian law enforcement officials said Monday.

The body of the man, born in 1986, was found outside a residential building in the town of Noginsk, some 30 kilometers (18 miles) east of Moscow, with a gunshot to the chest, Moscow Region police spokeswoman Irina Gumennaya said Monday.

According to a preliminary investigation, the victim was among four men drinking alcohol and listening to music in the yard around 3 a.m. Monday morning.

A man from a nearby building told the party-goers to turn the noise down, but they ignored him. "He later came back with a hunting rifle and shot one of the men dead," Gumennaya said.

The shooter fled the scene, but police say he has been identified.

A criminal investigation has been opened on murder charges, which carry a maximum punishment of up to 15 years jail.

… 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.
