One person opened fire inside the lobby FSB headquarters for Russia's Khabarovsk region at 17.02 P.M. local time, the agency confirmed. The attack began before the shooter had reached the building's security checkpoint.

One FSB employee and one visitor were killed in the shootout, while another guest was injured.

The attacker has been identified as a Khabarovsk native, born in 1999, the FSB said. He was also killed.
