Recently at the Perm University located in the Russian city of Perm – a gunman shot six people and injured 28 others.

As per the information, the attacker was a student at the university who walked onto campus on Monday morning and started shooting.

Numerous people were seen screaming and jumping from windows, while some students and teachers barricaded themselves inside the institute building.

Furthermore, the attacker was shot by the police in exchange of gunfire and then detained – said the authorities.

The first officer to arrive at the scene was officer Konstanin Kalinin. He disarmed the attacker, who had a gun and a knife, before directing first aid.

In a statement, President Vladimir Putin called the shooting “a great loss not only for the families who lost their children but for the whole country.”

The event happened at 11:00 (06:00 GMT) at Perm State University, about 1,300 kilometres (800 miles) east of the capital, Moscow, in the Urals. 

Officials at first stated eight had died but later reviewed the death toll down.

One professor at the university described students leaping out of buildings: “They jumped out in some horror, screaming,” he told the BBC.

“One of the students told me that it was a shooting. I heard pops, everyone began to scatter in different directions. I went to my students in the second building and continued to hear the pops.”

Some students locked themselves into classrooms to escape the killer.

“There were about 60 people in the classroom. We closed the door and barricaded it with chairs,” one student, Semyon Karyakin, told Reuters news agency.

The gunman allegedly acted alone and said he had no political or religious motives.

In a social media post, he also said he was consumed by hatred and intended to harm others.

“I’ve thought about this for a long time, it’s been years and I realised the time had come to do what I dreamt of,” he said on a social media account which was later taken down.
