Security forces are hunting the lone gunman who they suspect
of shooting dead the commander of the mountain post near the
country’s border with Kazakhstan, said Gulmira Borubayeva, a
spokeswoman for the border guard service.

Three other soldiers and the wife of a serviceman were also
killed in the attack, but three other border guards managed to
escape after hearing the shooting, she said.

It was not immediately clear why the accused border guard
would have embarked upon such a killing spree.
