A 30-year-old Russian lawyer shot dead six colleagues at his pharmaceutical firm in Moscow on Wednesday (November 7) in what appeared to be a drunken rampage after his girlfriend left him.
Dressed in camouflage gear and armed with two semi-automatic rifles, Dmitry Vinogradov shot dead four men and two women at their desks before giving himself up to security guards. Another woman was wounded.
Local media said Vinogradov had gone on a five-day drinking binge after being jilted by a pharmacist at the firm but she was not among those shot.
In a gruesome letter left on his social media page, Vinogradov voiced a deep hatred for those around him.
"What I saw and learned in my life nourished in me a hatred of mankind,"
"I hate mankind and life itself. I see only one way to justify it: Kill as many pieces of human compost as possible ... this is the only way to make the world better."
