Two people are reportedly dead following a shooting at a Moscow metro station, the state-run TASS news agency reported on Thursday.

A man opened fire and killed one person at the entrance of Noviye Cheryomushki station before committing suicide, TASS cited a law enforcement source as saying.

Russian media, citing the Baza Telegram channel, have reported that one of the dead was found with a press pass of The Moscow Times under the name Vagiv Gumbatov.

Vagiv Gumbatov is not an employee of The Moscow Times and the reported accreditation is not authentic.

… 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.
