Relevant police units were mobilized on the spot and operative-investigative measures were launched.

As a result of negotiations between the representatives of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the attacker, Sh.M. gradually released all the hostages, after which the law enforcers arrested him on the spot as an accused. No one was injured in the incident.
