A top-ranking official in Russia's Republic of Daghestan in the North Caucasus has been killed.
Officials say police Lieutenant Colonel Gadzhi Dzhabatyrov of the Daghestani Interior Ministry's Economic Security and Anticorruption Department was killed in his home in the regional capital, Makhachkala.
A spokesman for Daghestan's branch of the Russian Investigations Committee said four unidentified attackers wearing masks broke into Dzhabatyrov's house and shot him.
He died on the way to the hospital.
His family members were not hurt.
