In June 2005 Denis Rybakov and Alexander Pushilin ,the CEO of SIBERIA INDUSTRIAL INVESTMENTS company, came to the casino, raised a stink, called for securities of their private security company Sokol to “regulate” the problems and opened up shooting. After the order to lay down arms they continued fighting. As a result 3 persons were taken hospital with severe injuries.
The arriving operational group of District Department of the Interior of Leninsk region disarmed securities and started to call everybody in question.
