Blagoveshchensk shooter leaves audio message: “No one could’ve stopped it.”
He said, "No one would have been able to stop it from those that they’ll be blaming on TV when it all happens."
The 19-year-old student, Daniil Zasorin, who shot his classmates earlier today at the Amur College of Civil Engineering, had left an audio message before the attack, reported the telegram channel Baza. There is no evidence yet, however, that the voice on the record belongs to Zasorin.
“Suppose I call Danka now and say that tomorrow it’s going to happen [apparently, the shooting of his classmates. - Ed.]. So, what would he do exactly? Would he call the police? Knowing our police, they would just say okay, and hang up. Would he call my parents? I would have lied to them that Danka is angry because we’ve stopped talking; he gets drunk all the time,” the young man is heard saying.
He said, "No one would have been able to stop it from those that they’ll be blaming on TV when it all happens. So, why don’t you think about it this way. It’s a shame that it should be me, this place, this time”.
Further in the audio recording, the kid talks about the best years of his life, among which are kindergarten and school. “Everything was simple back then. But there is no time machine,” he said regretfully. In conclusion, the author of the message said all those listening should play computer games.
Daniil Zasorin shot up his college this morning. Three people were injured, two were killed, including the shooter himself, who committed suicide. Before that, he got into a shootout with police officers. According to media reports, Zasorin asked some of his classmates before class if they wanted to live. Soon he got into the room, pushed the teacher out into the hall and opened fire.
Criminal proceedings have been instituted under item (a), (i), part 2 of Art. 105 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (“Murder of two persons committed from molester motives”). According to preliminary data, it was a conflict between students that caused the incident.
