A Russian lawyer suffering from a broken heart shot and killed five of his coworkers in Moscow.
A Russian lawyer suffering from an unrequited love and on medication is accused of shooting dead five colleagues in his Moscow office, BBC News reported. The suspect, 30-Dmitry Vinogradov, is also accused of wounding two others. He is currently in police custody.
Dressed in camouflage gear and armed with two semi-automatic rifles, Vinogradov allegedly shot his five victims at their desks before giving himself up to security guards, Reuters reported. "The young man - a lawyer at the pharmaceutical chain - was left by a girl, after which he went drinking," a law enforcement source told the Interfax news agency.

In a letter left on the Russian version of Facebook before the alleged shooting, Vinogradov let the world know that he hated everyone."What I saw and learned in my life nourished in me a hatred of mankind," he had posted.
His mother Yelena Vinogradova told lifenews.ru that her son had been placed on medication after suffering from depression. The depression stemmed from a breakup with a woman who worked at his company. However, Agence France Presse points out that the lifenews.ru news site is "known for its close ties with law enforcement agencies."
