|Kunda amok case|
|Date|| August 7, 1976|
|Location(s)||Kunda, Soviet Union|
On that day the border guard, who was supposedly an ethnic Russian, together with a colleague visited a dance held at a vacation camp of workers from a shale pit, but since both of them were drunk and didn't behave properly, they were soon told by the workers to leave.
Enraged the Russian guard took his machine gun, which was reportedly loaded with explosive bullets, and first shot at the people around him, and then upon the tents. He also killed his colleague when he tried to disarm him, and eventually committed suicide. Besides the two border guards six people died at the scene, and at least 16 others were wounded, three of whom reportedly died in hospital.
