The death toll in a shooting at a Moscow pharmaceutical company office on Wednesday has risen to five, investigators said Wednesday. "A suspect has been detained and is being questioned. According to initial information, the incident took place in an office next to the warehouse," a police source told RIA Novosti. Police say they have arrested a suspect, who worked as a lawyer at the company. 

“It has been established that the shots were fired at the employees while they were at their work stations from two rifles held in two hands.” The source added that the shooting was motivated by case of unrequited love. 

The gunman shot six men at the warehouse territory in northeast Moscow on Wednesday morning, killing five and injuring one, the police said.
"At around 10 a.m., six men were shot at a warehouse on Chermyanskaya Ulitsa. Five were killed, one was injured," a source said.
