The man was employed as a security guard in a private company and was on duty at the time of the robbery. Along with two of his colleagues he arrived at the store in an armored car in order to drive the turnover from the cashiers to the bank. At the moment hen the money was loaded in the car the bandits started two cars parked nearby and stopped the armored car.

The security guards  managed to close the doors of the armored care, however the criminals started shooting at its windows with a Kalashnikova machine gun. One of the bullets hit the victim in the head. He was driven to the hospital right away where a little later he passed away.
