On Monday evening, October 1, the Tverskoy District Court of Moscow decided to arrest a guest of the Dagestani wedding party, which was marred by the fire from the traumatic handgun in downtown Moscow. Murad Agalarov, 25, was found guilty of petty hooliganism. He is about to be stripped of the gun license.
The Rossiiskaya Gazeta daily noted that allegedly one person was shooting. The police ask to pass any video records with these events in the Tverskoy police station, if someone has any. Then, probably, the detectives will find out whether there was one shooter.
The Komsomolskaya Pravda daily recalled that, according to the witnesses, the wedding motorcade of nine expensive cars (including Ferrari and Porsche Cayenne) was moving on the central streets along the Leningradsky Avenue and the Tverskaya Street to the Kremlin. The passengers were leaning out from the cars, were crying out on the drivers, who refused to cede the road to them, and were shooting in the air. The wedding motorcade did not permit anyone to outdrive a red Ferrari car of the bridegroom and the bride. The car was stopped only not far from the Red Square. The traffic jam popped up.
The Vechernaya Moskva daily reported that Speaker of the Moscow City Duma Vladimir Platonov explained that the deputies were interested in all details of the incident. “I has made a request to the chief law enforcers to inform us about what had actually happened and how the policemen were acting. The gunfire was opened in Moscow, I and my fellow deputies believe that this is just abnormal and this should not be this way. Therefore, we are also interested in all details. I believe that the prosecutor’s office will also inquire in this incident. All conditions will be provided that no one makes up his mind to shoot in the city, even on such a joyful occasion as marriage,” he said.
