Pretend robber is shot dead by guard during role play training exercise for Russian security firm

A video shows the appalling moment a cash handler pretending to be a robber was shot dead by a guard during a role play training exercise for a Russian security firm.

Oleg Korobkov, 23, posed as a robber during a drill in Russian city Nizhny Novgorod as his colleagues were ordered to role play responding to an attack.   

One guard overpowered a second pretend robber and stole his gun, say reports. 

On the video the guard is allegedly seen through a metal fence pointing the gun at Korobkov who carries ‘stolen money’.   

But the man ‘accidentally pulled the trigger’, according to reports, in what was supposed to be a training scenario at the offices of Brink’s, a subsidiary of the world leading company in transportation of cash and valuables.

‘Currently investigators are working at the scene,’ the Investigative Committee said. 

‘Witnesses, including company employees, are being questioned, and the documents are being seized.

‘All the circumstances of the incident are being established.’

While it is rare for people to be killed during role playing exercises – it does sometimes happen. 

In 2008, a British police officer was accidentally shot to death by a colleague during a training exercise. 

PC Ian Terry was playing the role of a criminal fleeing in a car when he was fatally blasted in the chest with a C.S. gas shell, designed to overpower suspects, in Manchester. 

In 2016, A Florida cop dressed as a ‘bad guy’ shot a 73-year-old mother dead during a role play exercise – because he loaded live rounds instead of blanks.  

Officer Lee Coel, 28, killed retired librarian Mary Knowlton by ‘mistake’ in front of 34 people, including her husband, during the demonstration in Punta Gorda, Florida.

The aim of the class was to teach people when not to shoot.
