Tbilisi, a woman became a victim of an accidental gun shot

A 50-year-old woman died as a result of a shooting in the centre of Tbilisi on Vazha-Pshavela Avenue.

Presumably, she was killed by an accidental shot.

The woman was in her apartment when a bullet pierced a windowpane and the landlady received a gunshot wound.

An employee of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia was detained, who is accused of negligence killing.

The investigation established that the shot was fired by a policeman living in the neighbouring building. The drunk man fired several shots from the balcony of his apartment.

Experts examined the scene. Cartridges and firearms were seized.

The accused was detained under the article of the Criminal Code of Georgia “causing death by negligence”. The article provides for punishment as restriction of liberty up to five years or imprisonment for a term of two to four years.
