MOSCOW (AP) — A wild bear has wandered through a shopping mall in Russia's Far East before being shot and killed by police. No injuries were reported.

Local TV channel MestoproTV released a video Wednesday that showed the bear smashing a window and roaming around the mall. It then ran to a nearby playground in the city of Khabarovsk close to the Chinese border.

On exit, the bear pushed open the store's doors and barreled down the street. The video showed camouflaged law enforcement officer pursue the animal and shoot it dead on the playground.

The Investigative Committee, Russia's main state investigative agency, has launched a probe into the legitimacy of police action.

The television report said the bear was between 2 and 3 years old, making it a teenager in bear years.
