ST. PETERSBURG, October 14 (Itar-Tass) - Police have detained seven suspects over the shooting incident that occurred in St. Petersburg on September 21, when a group of people, supposedly Caucasians, opened fire at night club visitors and parked cars.
Seven Russian citizens, natives of Dagestan, have been detained on suspicion of participating in the incident, a source at the police department for St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region told Itar-Tass on Monday. Earlier, Petersburg police opened a criminal case on hooliganism charges.
The incident took place at Dumskaya Street, one of St. Petersburg's night life centres where more than 20 bars and clubs are located. A conflict broke out between 20-25 visitors, supposedly North Caucasians, and guards of two bars. Three in the group opened traumatic and airgun fire at the guards. All escaped when the guards fired back. One received a traumatic injury in the incident. According to police, two days before the incident, there was another conflict between guards and visitors in one of the bars.
The next day, a video was placed in the Internet showing a group of 20-25 people running from the conflict site and shouting "Allah Akbar".
