Gunman Kills 15 in Russian School Shooting #shorts

A gunman in Izhevsk, the capital of Russia's Republic of Udmurtia, has killed at least 15 people, including 11 children, in the fourth school shooting in the region in the past 15 months.

Russia's Investigative Committee said on Monday that the gunman has been identified as Artem Kazantsev, a man in his early 30s who was a graduate of school No. 88, which is attended by students from kindergarten up to the end of high school.

The gunman, who some media outlets said was wearing a T-shirt with a swastika on it, shot himself dead at the scene, the committee said, adding that 24 people, including 22 children, were wounded in the incident.

Shootings at schools and other educational institutions in Russia and other former Soviet republics were very rare until recent years, when the numbers of incidents has risen.
