MOSCOW - A 30-year-old Russian lawyer shot dead five colleagues at his pharmaceutical firm in Moscow on Wednesday in what appeared to be a drunken rampage after his girlfriend left him.

Dressed in camouflage gear and armed with two semi-automatic rifles, Dmitry Vinogradov shot dead three men and two women at their desks before giving himself up to security guards, the Russian Investigative Committee said in a statement. Another man and a woman were wounded.

Local media said Vinogradov had gone on a five-day drinking binge after being jilted by a pharmacist at the firm. It was not clear whether she was among those shot.
