The incident occurred outside one of the entertainment facilities on Velyka Vasylkivska Street at night. A conflict, which escalated into a scuffle, took place between the visitors of the venue and passers-by next to a cafe. One of the participants later employed a rubber-bullet handgun against the opponents.
Law enforcers established that a married couple spending time in a bar got in a fistfight with three bystanders on the street. A 30-year-old man who engaged in a verbal altercation and was beaten, took out rubber-bullet handgun and made several shots in the direction of the offenders.
"All three persons received injuries of varying severity. Two of the wounded young men refused form medical assistance. The third participant of the clash was taken to a medical facility with a penetrating injury of the chest. He died without regaining consciousness after unsuccessful resuscitation," Pechersk police precinct Head Andrii Dubrova said.
Information on the incident has been recorded in the Unified Register of pretrial investigations as an act constituting an offence under Part 2 of the Article 121 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (intentional infliction of serious bodily injury).
