The national guard’s press office reported that “riot police officers and the Special Rapid Response Unit of the Rosgvardia (national guard) Directorate for the Udmurt Republic also went to the site’.

The press service of the Investigative Committee said that 15 people, including 11 adults and four children, had been killed by the shooter, who committed suicide. 24 people were injured, it added, including 22 children.

The Investigative Committee named the gunman as Artem Kazantsev, a former pupil of the school born in 1988, while a search at his home was being conducted.

“The identity of the gunman, his views and his surroundings are investigated. His adherence to neo-fascist views and Nazi ideology is checked,” it added.

The Committee has also opened a criminal case for the “murder of two or more persons, including minors”. The case has been referred to the agency’s central office, while its own forensic specialists were deployed to the crime scene.

Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed his sympathy to the families and friends of the victims.

“The President extends his deepest condolences to all those who have lost their loved ones, their children in this tragedy, and wishes recovery to those who have been injured in this inhumane act of terrorism,” the Kremlin’s press service said.
