After shooting a man, police files case against him

A criminal case has been initiated under part 1 of Art. 318 of the Russian Criminal Code (Use of Violence against a Representative of the Power) against a St. Petersburg citizen on the order of Chairman of ICR Aleksandr Bastrykin.

According to law enforcement bodies, December 30 several men rudely violated the public order in the Vyborg district of St. Petersburg, not far from the Lesnaya metro station. After they were stopped by law enforcers and asked to produce documents, the men continued to behave aggressively and disturb public order. At the same time, one of them rushed to a police officer and tried to take away his service pistol. To calm the brawler, the policeman fired a shot in the air and then shot the attacker’s arm.

Later, guards took the entire company to the police station. The investigating authorities are establishing the degree of participation of each company member in the offense. Following the results of investigative activities, law enforcement authorities will decide on the procedural detention of the defendants.
