  • The men on trial are accused of terrorising Moscow motorists for months in 2014

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. According to the BBC news, the security guards who were injured include a National Guard member, who had a gunshot wound and two police officers who suffered injuries as well.

"There was a shootout in the Moscow Regional Court, employees were wounded, I saw a wounded female bailiff, whose face was covered in blood", Rubasskaya said. Once the elevator arrived on the third floor of the courthouse, the accused started shooting at the National Guard officers waiting for them in the hall in an attempt to flee from the courthouse.

Tatiana Petrova, spokeswoman for the Russian Interior Ministry, said the suspects attempted to seize the guards' guns while inside an elevator. Two other defendants were seriously injured and taken to hospital.

The regional court was evacuated for about an hour before operations resumed in the building. They are in serious conditions.
