Law-enforcement officers are carrying out searches in a Kerch-based private security company Alfa that was responsible for security at a polytechnic college where a student carried out mass shooting yesterday, reports Mash Telegram channel.

Although they were obliged to provide feedback within a few minutes, Alfa staff members arrived at the college an hour after the shooting had begun. Law-enforcement officers are working on the matter. The seizure of documents is being carried out. 

No official comments from Crimea’s MIA have been received yet.

Anatoly Soshin, the private security company’s director, said the information on the searches is unreliable, reports RBK. In his words, there were no searches in the company’s office. Soshin also pointed out that the private security company’s staff members arrived at the college in 5 minutes after the attack alarm signal was received. 

The attack on the Kerch polytechnic college took place in the daytime, on October 17. The 4-year student Vladislav Roslyakov came to the college holding a rifle and homemade explosives and carried out mass shooting. After that, he shot himself dead. 20 persons died, and 68 were injured following the attack. The Investigative Committee of Russia opened a criminal case for a terrorist act (article 205 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) with reclassifying it as mass murder (item 2 of article 105) later.
