MAKHACHKALA, Russia — An official says police in the southern province of Dagestan opened fire on car that failed to pull over at checkpoint, killing 3 people, including 2 off-duty policemen

Regional police spokesman Vyacheslav Gasanov said the incident occurred late Wednesday in the eastern Kazbek district.

There was no immediate explanation for the incident. Human rights groups claim police officers and military are often involved in smuggling, kidnappings and arms sales.

Dagestan is plagued by near-daily shootings and explosions blamed on criminal gangs and on militants inspired by the insurgency in neighboring Chechnya.
