  • Description

    THE SOVIET COSMONAUTS, VLADIMIR SHATALOV, BORIS VOLYNOV, YEVGENY KHRUNOV AND ALEXEI YELIESEVEV, ATTENDED A PRESS CONFERENCE IN MOSCOW TODAY (FRIDAY) AS PART OF THEIR ROUND OF OFFICIAL DUTIES FOLLOWING THEIR ORBITING OF THE EARTH IN THE TWO SOYUZ SPACECRAFT. MEANWHILE, THE SOVIET UNION'S TOP SECURITY MEN WERE TODAY STILL TRYING TO UNRAVEL THE RIDDLE OF THE GUNMAN WHO FIRED AT THE CAVALCADE OF COSMONAUTS -- INCLUDING THE "SOYUZ QUARTET" -- ON WEDNESDAY.

    A BRIEF REPORT ON THE SHOOTING FROM THE SOVIET NEWS AGENCY TASS SAID THAT THE INVESTIGATION WAS CONTINUING. COMPLETE MYSTERY STILL SURROUNDS THE GUNMAN. IT'S NOT EVEN KNOWN WHO HE WAS ACTUALLY SHOOTING AT. THE SHOTS, SOME FIVE OR SIX OF THEM, WERE FIRED AT THE MOTORCADE AS THE SOVIET COSMONAUTS DROVE INTO THE KREMLIN IN TRIUMPHANT PROCESSION TO CELEBRATE THEIR COUNTRY'S LATEST SPACE FEATS. THE SOYUZ COSMONAUTS STOOD IN AN OPEN CAR AT THE HEAD OF THE PROCESSION AND WERE NOT HURT BY THE FLYING BULLETS.
