MOSCOW, November 13 (Itar-Tass) — Eight drivers of a wedding cortege, from which shots were fired on Monday afternoon as it moved in the west of Moscow, face an administrative arrest. The man who opened gunfire might be prosecuted on charges of hooliganism after a decision on opening a criminal case against him is made, a source from Moscow police told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
A call was put through to Moscow police emergency number "O2" at around 4.00 pm Moscow time Monday that shots were fired from a passing car near house No. 50 in Akademik Anokhin street. Police established that four shots as a minimum were fired from the wedding cortege. Police who arrived on the scene found four empty cartridge shells.
The wedding cortege ignored police orders to stop and drove on. Police pursued the cortege and stopped it in the area of Vorobyovo highway. Nine people who were in the cortege, including the one who opened gunfire, were detained.
On Tuesday the Moscow Nikulinsky district court is to consider a resolution on an administrative arrest of eight people, who drove the wedding cortege, on charges of defying police orders. The man who fired the shots is under an investigation which is to establish his guilt to a full extent. A possibility of opening a criminal case on charges of hooliganism is being considered, the police source said.
