BELGOROD, May 7 (RAPSI) - Sergei Pomazun, 31, who is suspected of shooting six people dead and injuring a policeman in the city of Belgorod in southern Russia, has refused to give testimony, his lawyer Viktor Yeremeyev told RIA Novosti.

He said his client had revealed where he had hidden his weapon and ammunition. However "he is unwilling to tell either investigators or me anything else," the lawyer said. When the investigator questioned him, Pomazun said he would tell it all in court.

He also admitted that his life hadn't worked out and that he wanted to commit suicide.

On April 22, Pomazun opened fire in a weapons store killing three people, and then shot another three people on the street outside. Five people died on the scene, including a 14-year-old girl. Another victim, a 16-year-old girl, died later in intensive care.

On April 23, Pomazun was detained when he attempted to flee the city on a freight train. He was identified and detained by the transport police. The suspect resisted arrest, wounding one of the police officers in the process.

If convicted, he will face life imprisonment.

The results of a medical examination determining whether the suspect is mentally competent will soon be known.
