Shooting Suspect Found Dead in Apparent Suicide ({{commentsTotal}})


Police have found the body of a man they believe committed suicide after fatally shooting another man in Lasnamäe on Tuesday.

A police dog found the body yesterday afternoon in a hidden part of a field, just 400 meters from the bus stop where the first killing took place.

Authorities say a key piece information was that although witnesses appeared to have heard just a single shot, the time of the shot was different.

Investigators now continue their work as the shooter and victim apparently did not know each other and no clear motive has yet been discerned.

On Tuesday at 21:00, a 21-year-old man was shot in the head and killed on Liikuri street by another man who was about 30 years old (initially thought to be older). The younger man, a Maritime Academy cadet, had been waiting for a bus with a woman. The two were drinking light alcohol and had planned to meet their friends at the Russalka memorial.
