MOSCOW, February 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Investigators have brought murder charges against the Moscow high school student who shot and killed two people earlier this month, Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
The teenager was charged with two counts of murder, attempted murder and hostage taking, Markin said.
On February 3, the student, armed with two rifles, forced a security guard to let him into the school building and entered a classroom of about 20 students, taking them hostage. He killed a geography teacher and then battled police officers responding to the crisis. One officer was killed and another wounded.
