In Ivano-Frankivsk region on Monday, August 3, the police detained a man who, during a search, opened fire from a ‘sawn-off shotgun’ and threatened to detonate a grenade. The press service of the Criminal Investigation Department of the National Police reports this on Telegram.
It is reported that detectives, together with operatives, searched a man who is suspected of growing narcotic plants (hemp).
"The scoundrel, realizing that the exposure of his illegal activities is inevitable, in response to the reading of the decree, he fired two shots from the sawn-off shotgun, after which he took out an object similar to an F-1 grenade and began to threaten law enforcement officers," the message says.
It is noted that help arrived at the scene of the incident. As a result of the negotiations, the attacker decided to surrender. No one was hurt as a result of the shooting.
"The police and the prosecutor's office are now imputing to him not only the production and trade of drugs, but also a threat to law enforcement officers," Deputy Interior Minister Anton Gerashchenko said.
As we reported before, law enforcement officers neutralized and detained an aggressor who threatened to blow up a bank in Kyiv.
