The case is that the staff of Rosgvardia arrived in the Moscow Regional Court to guard one of the criminals taken to the trial from Matrosskaya Tishina.

Tatiana Petrova, a spokeswoman for the Russian Interior Ministry's Moscow department, told TASS among those wounded were a Russian National Guard officer and two policemen.

One tried to strangle a guard before the defendants seized the guards' weapons and the group managed to escape, the investigative committee said. On the third floor of the courtroom defendants encountered officers of the National Guard.

They added that "three of the prisoners were liquidated and two wounded".

Lawyer Sofia Rubasskaya described the shooting as it unfolded. "They fall asleep in court, or do something else", the lawyer commented.

Moscow region prosecutor Alexei Zakharov promised to investigate possible violations of the convoy procedure. The gang consisted of at least 15 people from Central Asian countries. They worked as taxi drivers, construction workers, guards, many of them had families. They are charged with 17 murders, two attempted murders, banditry, plunder, illegal production and possession of weapons as well as with stealing documents.

In November 2014 the Investigative Committee reported arresting the supposed gang members.

They would force cars to stop on a main road, and kill the drivers for a reason still unknown.

The suspected ringleader, a native of Uzbekistan, was killed in a gunbattle with the police who came to arrest him in 2014. Five other members of the gang left Russian Federation and were put on the global wanted list.
