Charges brought against alleged Moscow region school shooter
MOSCOW, September 14 (RAPSI, Yevgeniya Sokolova) – Charges were brought against a teenager, who had allegedly opened fire in a school in the Moscow region, his attorney Viktor Zaprudsky told RAPSI on Thursday.
However, the lawyer did not disclose details because he had signed a non-disclosure agreement.
On September 7, Moscow’s Basmanny District Court detained the teenager until November 5.
Earlier, the attorney said that the teenager repented all what he had done and apologized to victims. According to Zaprudsky, the suspect’s parents are ready to be financially liable for their son’s actions.
As a result, the teacher received an open craniocerebral trauma. Three minors panicking jumped out of the window and were injured as well, the Investigative Committee’s statement reads.
In February 2014, a similar incident took place in Moscow. Sergey Gordeev, then 15, brought a rifle and a carbine to school. He killed a police officer and a teacher, injured one more person and took hostages. The Investigative Committee found that the student had fired at least 11 rounds from a small caliber rifle before he was arrested. The student was ordered to undergo compulsory medical treatment.
