Reportedly, immediately after the explosion the cars were machine-gunned by unidentified gunmen wearing camouflaged uniform. Then the criminals took refuge in the forest.
The attackers seemingly made a mistake, having chosen the wrong car for their attack. According to some reports, the explosion was targeted at an escort car, and then the same car was machine-gunned.
