Before the shooting was underway, Denis posted a photographs on Instagram showing guns, ammunition, walkie-talkies and dollar bills. They also left goodbye messages to friends and family on social media. Katya said they had acquired the guns from a safe in the cottage, which belonged to her stepfather, a former member of the military. The pair fled their homes three days previously after an argument with her mother, Katya says – at which point Denis shoots her in the leg with an air pistol. In the footage, Denis says: If we dont surrender, we die. But if we surrender, we will never see each other again. In a statement, Russian police said officers had not returned fire and had tried to persuade the pair to give themselves up. When they stormed the house, they found clear signs of suicide.
