Terry Michael Duncan
Born in the U.S. state of Georgia, Duncan went to Tulane University for undergrad and earned his law degree from George Washington University in Washington, D.C.. Alongside Jamison Firestone, Duncan moved to Moscow to establish the law firm Firestone Duncan & Associates, which employed Russian accountant and auditor Sergey Magnitsky.
Duncan was killed on October 3, 1993 near TV center Ostankino by a ballistic gunshot wound of the head. He had gone to the TV center with demonstrators and couldn't easily leave the area.
One after another, he rescued wounded people from the zone of gunfire and returned again under bullets, demonstrating extraordinary heroism. According to Russian sources, he has rescued 12 people. As friend of him said, "He was always a risky person, and took care of those in hard situations."  The last person who Duncan attempted to save was an injured photo reporter of the New York Times newspaper, Otto Pohl, but a sniper from the TV center building shot Duncan in the head (according to a different source, Duncan was killed by "a casual bullet").
After the shooting his body was carried away by soldiers of a special unit from the TV center building to Argunovskaya street. There are several eyewitnesses to the shooting, as well as video and photographic footage. He was survived by his father, mother and his younger brother.
