Transcript for At least 1 dead in shooting at Russia Security Service HQ
Overseas for the latest on the attack at the head of Russia's spy service and unleashed as president Putin delivered a speech honoring the security services. Ian Pannell is in Moscow with the details. Good morning, Ian. Reporter: Yeah, good morning, George. That's right. The hunt is on to try to identify the man and motive behind this shooting at the heart of Russia's security establishment. Now, it took place here at the fsb headquarters. That is the internal security services, the successor to the kgb. According to authorities what we know there was a lone gunman that opened fire just around the corner and killed one fsb officer, shots rang out, passers-by were running for cover and five civilians were also injured -- sorry, four officers, one civilian and trying to establish the motive. Was it a lone gunman slightly unhinged or a terrorist attack? We believe that they have now identified perhaps where the man lived. Either way this is an audacious attack in the heart of Russia's state security, Michael. Thank you so much for that, Ian.
