Shooting at a Russian university killed 6 people, injured 28

MOSCOW – A student at a Russian university was shot dead on Monday, killing six people and injuring 228, before police opened fire and detained them.

Aside from saying he was a student, authorities did not provide further information about his identity or possible motives.

At the time of the attack, students and staff at Perm State University locked themselves in a room, and video posted on Russian news sites showed some students jumping out of a second-floor window.

In some footage, a black-clad, helmeted man is seen standing on a long-barreled weapon on the sidewalk of campus. Russia’s Investigative Committee, the country’s top agency for criminal investigations, says the gunman fired a smooth hunting weapon. This may indicate that he used a shotgun.

The committee of inquiry said six people had been killed, revising the previous eight dead. No explanation was given for the change.
