MOSCOW, Sep 23 (Reuters) An irate driver shot dead a Moscow road worker and injured a second after a wheel on his Mercedes car was damaged on a city street early today Interfax news agency reported.

Described by Moscow police as a short man in his late twenties, the driver returned with a pistol and opened fire on the workmen just minutes after they refused to compensate him for the damage the roadworks had caused.

The dead man, aged 28, came from Georgia and had only started working for the construction firm two days earlier.
