Moscow court shooting: Gang suspects killed in escape bid
8 hours ago | From the section Europe


Three defendants have been killed in a court in the Russian capital, Moscow, after they tried to take the arms from officers in an attempt to escape, officials say.
Five suspected gang members attacked two agents who were escorting them in a lift, the Investigative Committee said.
The group was handcuffed and it was not immediately clear how they managed to free themselves to attack the guards.
[...]
The group of Central Asian nationals was suspected of killing 17 motorists in the Moscow area between 2012 and 2014. Cars were forced to stop on a main road and their drivers were killed for reasons as yet unknown; none of their possessions were stolen.
