According to eyewitnesses, Evgeny’s car was blocked by attackers using a black Mercedes Vito minibus at the crossroads of streets Zlatnická and Na Poříčí.

Then they disappeared on a minibus in an unknown direction.
Doctors of the central hospital in Prague assess the businessman’s condition as extremely serious, an ambulance arrived at the crime scene quickly enough, but due to deep bullet wounds, Evgeny lost a lot of blood.
