“Yuri Shishlov was taken to hospital in a grave condition. Several hours later the Luch Energiya football club received a sad message about Shishlov’s death,” FC Luch Energiya spokesman told RIA Novosti.
Police sources say the attack was an apparent contract killing attempt. Shishlov, also former deputy boss of Yaroslavl‘s FC Shinnik, was a key prosecution witness in the recent case against his ex-chief.
On July 20, FC Shinnik ex-director Vladimir Shepel was found guilty of embezzlement and fraud and sentenced to five years and six months in prison.
