MOSCOW, April 01. /ITAR-TASS/. Investigators have brought attempted murder charges against a police officer who opened fire in western Moscow.
"Dmitry Trubnikov is suspected of the crime covered by Article 30, Part 3 and Article 105, Part 2 of Russia's penal code ("attempted murder of two or more persons"), an Investigative Committee (IC) official said.
