The 20-year-old was attacked as he drove to his parents’ house in the village of Novokuli in the province pf Dagestan in the North Caucasus and died on the way to the hospital.

Magomedov’s family heard the gunfire and ran from the house to find the youngster bleeding in his car and as yet the police are yet to identify the attackers or the motives behind the incident.

Makhachkala is the capital of Dagestan and the region has seen several outbreaks of militant Islamist activity in recent times and many of Anzhi’s players in the past have chosen to live away from the area as a result.

The Russian had been playing in the Anzhi youth system and was yet to make a senior appearance for the first team and the club’s general director Sergey Korablev have his condolences to the Magomedov family.

“We console with Gasan’s family. I hope the law-enforcement bodies will quickly find the killers and they will receive just punishment,” Korablev said.
