Latvian Television has unofficial information that the incident occurred on Kandava street in the south of the city. One man apparently entered the office and shot another man before turning the gun on himself and committing suicide.
The police said that the man was acting alone, so the public has no need to feel threatened.
Police are currently investigating the scene and criminal proceedings have begun, including attempts to determine the motive for the shooting.
Later in the day State Police Rīga Regional Branch Criminal Police Department Chief Andrejs Sozinovs announced that a man born in 1973 drove up to the office building, called a man born in 1970 out of the office and shot the full magazine from his Walther firearm at him.
After moving back a few meters he left his car in the courtyard with open doors, reloaded his weapon and shot himself in the head. State Emergency Medical Service Representative Ilze Bukša told LTV that medics had pronounced both men dead upon arrival.
Police say that the weapon was a legal firearm, and that there was no history of offenses to warrant seizure. It was also noted that it's a very expensive gun. Sozinovs said that this is an unusual crime for Latvia, as people don't tend to just shoot each other and gun control are tight.
Birojā Rīgā vīrietis nogalinājis darbinieku, izšaujot uz viņu visu aptveri, un izdarījis pašnāvību. @Valsts_policija informē, ka ierocis vīrietim bija legāls, nebija reģistrēti kādi pārkāpumi, kādēļ ierocis būtu jāatņem. https://t.co/g1K2qNMiqI pic.twitter.com/A9Lkdnw3qX— LTV Ziņu dienests (@ltvzinas) January 7, 2020
