Student opened fire in Russian school; 7 pupils wounded
In early 2018 there were two attacks on schools in Russia.
Seven pupils of the 7th grade were injured as a result of a shooting at school No. 15 in Shadrinsk, Kurgan region.
As the Main Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation for the region tells TASS, a 13-year-old student opened fire from an air pistol owned by her father in the morning of March 21.
The victims escaped with bruises. According to Znak.com, one of the students was injured in the temple and was hospitalized.
According to one of the pupils of the school, the attack on schoolchildren was planned. It was organized by three students, who also got knives. "One girl said that she felt sick and asked for assistance. The other girl closed the cabinet while the teacher was escorting the first one to a health center; so, they had a plan... Most likely, they decided to re-act Columbine," the pupil tells Znak.com.
"Currently, investigative and operational group, which establishes what happened, is working on the site. The educational institution operates in a routine mode," the Ministry of Internal Affairs reports.
In early 2018 there were two attacks on schools in Russia. On January 15, two teenagers attacked the fourth graders at school No. 127 in Perm, injuring 15 people with knives. On January 19, a ninth-grader with an ax and a Molotov cocktail penetrated into school No. 5 in Ulan-Ude, set an office on fire and wounded seven people with an ax. The Investigative Committee initiated criminal proceedings under the articles Attempted Murder and Negligence.
