“There is a person suspected of committing this crime, and we have
every reason to think that this person committed the crime. We’re
working on the case. We’re taking special measures to detain this
person,” the minister said.
The minister also said that the police have obtained a video record
of the events at the scene of the crime from the shopping mall. He added
that, according to experts’ conclusions, the suspect used an unusual
gun that looks like Makarov pistol. In particular, the police found on
the scene of the crime a self-made device for collecting bullet cases,
which was attached to the gun and dropped during the shooting.
In turn, Head of the Public Liaisons Department of the Interior
Ministry Volodymyr Polischuk said that the suspect is a Kyiv resident
born in 1986.
