Unfortunately, the information about the death of people during the shooting in one of the higher educational institutions of the city of Perm has been confirmed. Initially, it was reported that an unknown person opened fire in the building of the Perm University. At the same time, there was no information about who the gunman was and what particular university he was talking about.
Now the information is starting to clear up.
According to the latest data, we are talking about the tragic events at the Perm State National Research University. A young man, who is believed to be one of the students of this university, opened fire, which led to casualties.
Local media, citing law enforcement officers, report that at least 8 people died as a result of criminal actions. Several people who were at that moment in the building of the university were injured.
At the same time, it is reported that the gunman was detained. During the arrest, he resisted. As a result, the offender himself was injured.
Messages on the official page of the university in the social network (at 11:00 Moscow time):
Eyewitnesses of the event are asked to go to the KFOR over the speakerphone. Others can leave the campus.
It was also reported about the evacuation of the 8 building of the university.
Initially, it was reported that the attacker was carrying a traumatic pistol. Eyewitness students claim the pump-action shotgun.
Information on the number of dead and injured is being specified.
Meanwhile, a post of one of the university students is circulating on the network, who claims that he was preparing the massacre for a long time. If you believe the disseminated information, then this was his "dream" since the 10th grade of school. At the same time, in the post, he states that the incident was prepared by one and was not a member of any extremist group.
According to unconfirmed reports, the attacker at the university died while being transported to the clinic. Other sources state that he is currently in intensive care.
