Detectives are questioning the detained Moscow teenager shooter and witnesses of hostage-taking at Moscow secondary school number 263 in Otradnoye district in the northeast of Moscow, spokesman of the Russian Investigative Committee Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass on Monday.

However, the teenager opened fire at policemen, wounding Senior Sergeant Vladimir Krokhin and shooting down Warrant Officer Sergei Bushuyev.
