A shooting incident took place in Moscow, inside the building of Moscow oblast court. Three men were killed, another two wounded. Diana Tatosova, the lawyer who represented one of the defendants said that as quoted by Dozhd TV channel.

The investigation said that two guards were convoying five defendants in the elevator when the attack took place. One of the defendants started choking one of the guards, while the others took their weapons from them; the guards called for reinforcements. In the end, three of the five attackers were killed; another two got severely wounded and were taken to a hospital. The guards received less serious injuries and now testify.

The deceased are three of the nine defendants in this case – the members of the so-called ‘GTA band’. The investigation insists that the group of armed men killed 17 people and wounded two more in 2012-2014; the band was named after ‘Grand Theft Auto’ (GTA), the widely famous videogame.  

The investigation into the incident is underway.
