Five people died after a Moscow lawyer, spurned by a colleague, went on a drunken shooting rampage at a warehouse here Wednesday morning.

"Six people were shot at a warehouse on Chermanskaya Street. Five were killed, one was injured," a police source said.

Police say they arrested a suspect, Dmitry Vinogradov, 30, who worked at the company.

"The gunman was a lawyer at the firm at this address. He has said he was in love with a pharmacist at the company but it was unrequited. So he went on a five-day drinking binge, and today came to work and started shooting. The girl in question is among the victims," a police source said.

Three of the dead were men, and two women, he said.
