According to unofficial sources, Ukraine's Security Service (SBU) and Prosecutor's Office forces are involved in searching for killers. The victim is said to head a major law firm to be a well-known volunteer who helped the Ukrainian army. A few hours before the gang men killed the lawyer, a car with weapon was discovered not far from the crime scene.

Since residents of nearby neighbourhoods did not hear gunshots, law enforcement officers are inclined to say that the criminals used guns with a silencer.
