Rival Gang Killing

MOSCOW () -- Masked men firing submachine guns shot to death three members of a rival gang and critically injured another as they emerged from a nightclub in the Olympic Stadium complex, police said Monday.

The victims of the Sunday night ambush in central Moscow were members of the Kazan gang, believed to be the most influential criminal gang in the capital region, police told Interfax.

The men were shot at point-blank range as they emerged from the Fellini nightclub. Police said they found two Kalashnikov assault rifles, a pistol, cloth masks and about 80 spent cartridges.
