A member of GTA gang, Khazratkhon Dodokhonov, who had been wounded in the shootout in the Moscow Regional Court, has been brought to another court hearing.
"Khazratkhon Dodokhonov has been brought before the court; he will take part in today’s hearing," Press Secretary of the Moscow Regional Court Natalya Osipova told journalists.
On Tuesday, the Moscow Regional Court will continue hearing the case of the so-called GTA gang.
It was previously reported that another gang member, Fazletdin Khasanov, who had also taken part in the shootout, earlier died of the wounds in the hospital.
August 1, five defendants in the case of GTA gang attacked two police escorts and caused a shootout in the building of the Moscow Regional Court. As a result, three gangsters were killed, and five people were injured (including two defendants).
Four more defendants in this case did not participate in the attack, as they were in the courtroom at the time of the incident.
According to the ICR, the so-called GTA gang was formed in 2012. It included 14 members, all of whom were natives of the Central Asian republics. By 2014, the crime group members had killed 17 people (and wounded 2) on the territory of Moscow and the Moscow and Kaluga regions. In rare cases, victims of the armed assaults got off with serious beatings and threats. Nine participants have been brought to trial, four more have been put on the international wanted list, and the gang leader was eliminated during detention.
The name GTA gang first appeared in the media; it is a reference to the famous computer game Grand Theft Auto.

Given the reputation and family ties of Anar Allakhveranov, whose elder brother is serving a sentence for a similar crime on the grounds of extortion, new episodes may emerge in the case. The family of Andrey Drachev and his lawyers are positive – the killing was no accident.
