The person had a gun and executed Markelov at the spot. Anastasiya tried to stop the murderer and was shot as well. She died later in the hospital. Baburova was working at Novaya Gazeta as reporter and that day was together with Markelov after press conference.

Later on russian police arrested several people in connection with radical nationalist organization BORN (“Боевая Организация Русских Националистов” – “Fighting Organization of Russian Nationalists”), that performed execution of Markelov and Baburova.
