Law enforcement agencies in the US have confirmed that the children who died as a result of a shooting incident in a private house near Belper in Washington State came from Russia. This was reported by the Agency Sputnik with reference to the coroner of Mason County.
“I was told by investigators in the Police Department that the two boys’ nationality was Russian,” – quotes Sputnik from the words of the coroner Pencz.
US authorities are also ready to provide Russian diplomats with all the information about the murder investigation. Currently the cause of the children’s massacre is being investigated.
As a reminder, the tragedy took place in Belper this morning. The man called 911 and said he shot four people. Presumably, the victims of the shooting were his wife and two children. The suspect killed himself when the police arrived on the scene.
