As previously reported by The CrimeRussia, the teenager came to school with a knife on Thursday morning. He locked himself in one of the rooms and threatened to hurt himself. Students were evacuated from the school, and the room where the teenager locked himself was cordoned off.
The police managed to detain the boy thanks to his mother and grandfather. According to his relatives, he had recently become out of control and had been taking anti-headache pills. Parents had taken him to see a psychiatrist, who advised them to place him under hospitalization and make him undergo a full examination. Mash reports via Telegram that the teenager admitted that some “voices” told him to come to school with a knife. He is suspected of suffering of schizophrenia.
The Investigations Directorate in the Leningrad Region of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation (ICR) is going through turbulent times. After an unexpected replacement of the supreme command, the winds of change started blowing. Colonel of justice Pavel Vymenets, the new acting head of the agency, launched personnel reshuffles. According to sources, all means are used to purge the ranks from corrupt officers, including collection of compromising materials and denunciations.
