  • Moscow court shooting: Three dead and four injured after gunfight breaks out at court in Russian capital

The defendants somehow managed to escape and seized the guards' weapons.

More than 20 gunshots were fired at a court in the Moscow region in Russian Federation on Tuesday, injuring several people. I saw a wounded woman bailiff, her face (covered) in blood. "Later somebody said that an armed guard had been injured", Rubasskaya said.

No other details were immediately available. Three defendants were killed in the shooting, two were gravely injured and hospitalized.

Three members of a "Grand Theft Auto" gang, who allegedly murdered 17 people, were killed in a struggle with guards at a court near Moscow this afternoon.

Russia's Investigative Committee said the attempted getaway started while the five handcuffed men were being escorted by two guards in an elevator at the Moscow Regional Court where they were standing trial.

Three gunmen were killed Tuesday after opening fire at the Moscow Regional Court, Russia's official TASS news agency reported.

People inside the building were evacuated.

Nine suspected members of the gang have been on trial since last summer, and prosecutors have asked for life sentences.

A criminal investigation has been launched into the attack, and the court has since resumed work, TASS said.

The G.T.A. gang - which largely consists of men from the former Soviet republics in Central Asia - was behind a series of murders in the Moscow area in 2014.

In the dead of night, the gang members placed metal spikes on roads to burst the tyres of passing cars, then ruthlessly gunned down their drivers and disappeared.
