Russian state media reported that a man carrying a knife and a hunting rifle opened fire on worshippers at the church in Kizlyar, in the Dagestan region of Russia, killing at least five people and wounding several others.

The gunman shouted, “Allahu akbar,” and immediately began firing afterwards, killing four women.

Luckily the priest was able to close the door of the church and stopping the attacker from going inside, in this manner preventing more casualties.

The attack took place in Kizlyar, a town of about 50,000 people.
