MOSCOW, December 30. /TASS/. All the men suspected of an attack on extra-departmental guards in a supermarket in one of Moscow's new neighborhoods, that left one guard dead and another injured on Thursday night, have been detained.

An Interior official told TASS earlier there were five attackers.
On Thursday night, a post of extra-departmental guard reporting to Rosgvardiya received a distress call on robbery in a supermarket of the Dixie retail chain located in Rogovskoye neighborhood in New Moscow.

In response, the unknown men put up active resistance, shooting and killin a 30-year-old sergeant from a handgun of an unidentified type. One more guard received wounds.
The malefactors made a getaway from the scene with the weapons seized from the guards. Police enacted an amber alert plan across the Moscow region to track them down.
