3 Killed in Attack on Ambulance Depot in Crimea

The attack was allegedly carried out by local resident Bekir Nebiyev, the news report said.

Three people were killed in an attack on an ambulance depot in the Crimean city of Simferopol on Saturday, the Interfax news agency reported.

The attack was allegedly carried out by local resident Bekir Nebiyev, the news report said. Police had not apprehended him by the time of publication.

Nebiyev, 55, reportedly went to the depot at about 4 p.m. Saturday and started shooting at medics, killing two and injuring another two people, one of whom died later in the hospital.

Local officials cited by Interfax claimed Nebiyev suffered from a psychiatric disorder and had attacked the station in revenge for a relative who had been misdiagnosed.

On Sunday police published a photo of Nebiyev and called on local residents to share any information about his possible whereabouts.

… 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.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
