Besides the driver, there was a 3-year-old boy in the car. The boy, who was Soboliev's son, was killed in gunfire, the source said.
The incident occurred at the intersection of Leo Tolstoy and Tarasovska streets.
A CSI team are working at the scene, which has been cordoned off.
The investigation is underway.
Metro police have introduced a special protocol to track down the attackers who are believed to have fled the scene in a Lexus vehicle.
