Moscow: Three gangsters killed in courthouse firefight


Five handcuffed defendants tried to escape as they were escorted by two guards at the Moscow Regional Court, according to Russia's Investigative Committee, the country's chief investigative body.

Svetlana Petrenko, spokesperson for Russia's Investigative Committee, said one of the suspects tried to choke an escort officer while in a lift at Moscow Region Court.

A bailiff and armed guard also suffered bullet wounds in the attack, lawyer Sofia Rubasskaya, who was in the building at the time, told TASS. Three of them are police and National Guard officers.

Three members of a gang accused of highway killings in the Russian capital were killed in a Moscow court after a shoot-out.

The three defendants were members of a gang that were involved in "one of the more lurid episodes of Moscow's recent past". She was injured, her face was [covered] in blood. When the elevator reached the third floor, Russian National Guard officers were already there.




The two surviving attackers were in hospital with gunshot wounds but were not in serious condition, the official said.

A court spokeswoman said the building was evacuated amid the chaos. Other two were wounded. "And the weapons, they captured", she said, speaking with difficulty.

Information about the death of the fourth member of the GTA gang has not been confirmed by the authorities yet. One of the employees of Rosgvardia Mikhail Ananichev was wounded by bandits in the shoulder.

The gang supposedly gained its name as the members attacked vehicle owners on highways copying the popular Grand Theft Auto game franchise.

The nine men, all from Central Asia, are charged with 17 murders and two attempted murders.
