Man goes postal over salary and kills two women

Man goes postal over salary and kills two women
Two women have been shot dead in a grisly incident in Russia’s Far East. A man killed the two officials in a fit of rage and later committed suicide.

The man worked as a yard-cleaner at a local government office in the city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.

Friday morning he carried a rifle with him and attacked his employers, shooting two women. The head of the office was killed on spot, while the chief accountant received a lethal wound and died in hospital.

The attacker fled the crime site and shot himself in his apartment 15 minutes later.

Police said the man had a grudge against his superiors over his salary, which he believed was too low. Some reports suggest he’d threatened them the day before the incident.
