The peo­ple who were shot near the pri­vate clinic in Airz­pute on Sun­day, 30 Septem­ber, are not Lat­vian cit­i­zens, said Chief of Crim­i­nal Po­lice An­drejs Grišins prior to the press-brief­ing or­ga­nized on Mon­day, 1 Oc­to­ber.

The chief of crim­i­nal po­lice did not re­veal the na­tion­al­ity of the vic­tims. He did not say if the vic­tims are Rus­sian. He only said that two of them were men and one – a woman. Grišins said the vic­tims are mid­dle-aged.

The chief of Crim­i­nal Po­lice also said that all vic­tims were stay­ing in a guest house not far from the scene of the crime. Ac­cord­ing to him, the cur­rent state of the vic­tims is se­ri­ous but sta­ble. Grišins said the crime was likely com­mit­ted by a group of peo­ple. On Sun­day, 30 Septem­ber, a shoot­ing took place at Vi­tal­ity Academy pri­vate clinic in Aiz­pute County.

State Po­lice rep­re­sen­ta­tive Ilze Jurēvica said that three peo­ple were shot, but their in­juries are not life-threat­en­ing. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Vi­tal­ity Academy have con­firmed that a shoot­ing did take place at the clinic, but not on its ter­ri­tory. The clinic’s work was not dis­rupted, how­ever.
