Five killed as ‘rejected lover’ goes on shooting rampage in Moscow
MOSCOW A 30-year-old Russian man apparently suffering from unrequited love on Wednesday killed five colleagues on a shooting spree in his Moscow office after declaring his hatred for life, investigators said.

The man is believed to have posted an online manifesto in which he proclaimed his “hatred for humankind as a species” hours before the killing spree, prompting comparisons with Norweigian killer Anders Behring Breivik.

Dmitry Vinogradov, 30, opened fire at the offices of the drugs company in northeast Moscow on Wednesday morning, killing five of his colleagues and wounding another two, the Investigative Committee said.

“On the morning of November 7, 2012, the suspect came into the office of the pharmaceutical company he works for and fired numerous shots from Saiga and Benelli shotguns that he owns,” the statement said.

“As a result, three men and two young women sitting at their desks died on the spot.

“One more man and another young woman were wounded, they are receiving medical help,” it said, adding that the company’s security guards had detained him.

A spokeswoman for the Investigative Committee, said the man shot from two guns simultaneously. He was placed under arrest and is being questioned by investigators.

Russian news agencies, citing sources in the city’s law enforcement agencies, said the attacker was suffering from unrequited love for a colleague.

“I hate human society and being part of it disgusts me! I hate the meaningless of human life!” Vinogradov wrote in a manifesto posted on one of Russia’s top social networks, the Lenta.ru news site said.

“I hate the life itself. I see only one way to justify it: to eliminate as many particles of human compost as possible.”
