Unsurprisingly, as it only happened a few hours ago, things are pretty unclear, other than a large number of casualties.
RIP the victims.
A student has attacked a vocational college in Crimea in a shooting rampage that killed 17 other students and left more than 40 people wounded, before killing himself, according to Russian officials. Russia's Investigative Committee said that the attack was a now being treated as a case of mass murder not terrorism.
'Russian officials at first reported a gas explosion, then said an explosive device ripped through the college canteen at lunchtime in a suspected terrorist attack. But witnesses reported at least some of the victims were killed in an attack by a gunman or gunmen.
'Sergei Aksyonov, the regional leader in Crime, said on television that the student, a local man acting alone, killed himself after the attack. The Investigative Committee identified the attacker as Vladislav Roslyakov, 18. It said he was caught on security cameras entering the college with a rifle and firing at students. The committee said all the victims died of gunshot wounds, contrasting with previous statements by other officials saying they had wounds resulting from an explosion.
'Olga Grebennikova, director of the vocational college, told KerchNet TV that men armed with automatic rifles burst into the college and "killed everyone they saw".'
Well i just had to escort my cleaner round a 3 mile roadblock to see her dad in hospital. Not a terrorist attack just armed police dealing with armed enriching shitbags. Still annoying though. I may borrow the keys to the outrage bus later.
Blame it on 'Merica. Looks like that's what the Russians are going to do. A great excuse to restrict access to non-Russian government approved www/media.
'Was the Kerch college attacker inspired by the infamous Columbine massacre in the US? That is for the investigators to find out, but his actions look shockingly similar to those of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold back in 1999.'
