At the entrance to the nightclub, he saw the showdown and decided to intervene.

As the press reported at the time, the negotiations ended badly: Machiyev decided not to bother with a fight this time but took out his weapon and started shooting.

The lieutenant fired back. Shahban was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the thigh. The soldier died on the spot.

Shakhban became a world champion in combat sambo in 2006. He was a five-time republican champion in wushu-sanda and a two-time CIS champion in hand-to-hand combat.

In March 2021, Machiyev was acquitted on the basis of a jury verdict, but a higher court overturned the acquittal and sent the case for a new trial. The defendant disappeared outside of Russia and was put on the international wanted list.
