A student opened fire at a university in the Russian city of Perm on Monday, killing at least eight people and wounding several, law enforcement said.
The gunman was himself killed after the shootings at Perm State University, around 1,300 km (800 miles) east of Moscow, Natalia Pechishcheva, a university spokesperson, said. “He was liquidated,” she said. Footage from the scene showed his prone body on the ground outside.
Earlier media footage from the scene showed students jumping from first-floor windows to escape the building, landing heavily on the ground before running to safety.
