VORONEZH, April 30 (RAPSI) - "Belgorod shooter" Sergei Pomazun, suspected of killing six people, will undergo a psychiatric examination in the next few days, Yelena Kozyreva, senior aide of the head of the Investigative Committee's regional department, told RIA Novosti.
"The investigation has collected detailed information about Pomazun's actions in the last few days before the shooting and his behavior in prison. This information will be used for his psychiatric examination," she said.
Kozyreva did not say where the examination will be held, but added that it would not be in a hospital.
She said the examination is likely to be held on April 30 or May 1, and that investigators are working with Pomazun around the clock, seven days a week.
On April 22, Sergei Pomazun, 31, opened fire in a weapons store in Narodny Boulevard in Belgorod in southern Russia, 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 and wounded one of the officers in the process.
If convicted, he will face life imprisonment.
