At least thirteen people were killed after a gunman opened free at a school in the Russian city of Izhevsk on Monday, according to media reports.
Quoting Russia’s Investigative Committee, the TASS news agency reported that at least 13 people were killed after a firing in a school in the Russian city of Izhevsk today.
Investigators previously said a gunman had killed nine, including five children, at the school before committing suicide, the report said.
The report said the attacker was armed with two pistols and a large supply of ammunition.
Pertinently, Russia has seen several school shootings in recent years. In May 2021, a teenage gunman killed seven children and two adults in the city of Kazan. In April 2022, an armed man killed two children and a teacher at a kindergarten in the central Ulyanovsk region before committing suicide.
