He claimed that the woman in question was the mother of his ex-wife, Lyubov Pavlovna.
In the now viral post, Shovkovskiy alleged that he went to collect the daughter he fathered with Olga Alenova, who he divorced in October 2015.
After several minutes knocking at the door without anyone responding, Shovkovskiy moved to make his way back to the car, from where the incident was being filmed.
Then a door swings open from a balcony above where the ex-footballer was stood, and a woman shouts at him to leave the property.

Shovkovskiy wrote: "First, Lyubov Pavlovna aimed at my head and threw stones she had collected, from the balcony.
"And then she started shooting at me with a pistol.
"She fired three shots aimed at me, People ran from the neighbouring house after hearing the shots and offered to help."
In the post Shovkovskiy also alleges that he ex-mother in law has been "convicted of alcohol addiction" and has "insulted and raised her hand" towards her granddaughter.
He then asks the general public for help on how he can get help with the "interfering communication with his child".

He had a 23-year-long club and international illustrious career and he retired in December 2016 at the age of 41.
