Three participants in Krasnodar shootout detained

The court has ruled to place three alleged participants in the conflict of North-Caucasian natives that broke in Krasnodar behind bars. During the conflict, two people suffered, investigators informed on August 23.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on August 21, a conflict with involvement of several dozen people took place near the Vishnyakov marketplace in Krasnodar. A local resident, a native of Dagestan, was killed in a shootout.

According to investigators, four participants in the conflict have been detained. Three of them have already been placed into custody by a court ruling; investigators intend to seek the arrest of the fourth one. Among the persons detained in Sochi, there is a suspect in the shooting, says a statement of the Investigating Committee of the Russian Federation (ICRF). "During one of the searches, the investigator found and seized [from him] a threaded hunting rifle," investigators have informed.

Two conflict victims have become known, investigators have informed, without specifying the wounds and the persons' current condition.

The statement notes that it was "an everyday (domestic) conflict" among "visitors from republics of Northern Caucasus."
