The incident took place in the central Russian city of Izhevsk on Monday, 26 September, when a shooter with his blazing gun took the lives of 13 people and wounded 21.
Izhevsk is a city of 640 K people located about 960 kilometres (600 miles) east of Moscow in the Udmurtia region. Situated west of the Ural mountains in central Russia this city was the place of this unfortunate event where 7 children become the victims of this frenzy fanatic attack. Out of the 21 wounded, 14 were again children as reported by Russia’s Investigative Committee.
The governor of Udmurtia, Alexander Brechalov, said in a video statement that the unidentified gunman shot himself. The identity of the gunman is still murky. If we go by what the investigative committee stated then it is to be believed that the shooter donned a black t- shirt containing “Nazi Symbols”. Apart from this, no further details about the gunman and most crucially his motives have been released.
The targeted school was a centre for education for children between the grades 1 and 11. The said school has been evacuated and the surroundings have been cordoned off, the governor said.
