WorldRussiaRussian Kindergarten shooting: Armed man opens fire, leaves four dead
An armed man has opened fire in a kindergarten Tuesday in Russia’s central Ulyanovsk region, leaving at least four people dead, local authorities said.
As per the head of the Ulyanovsk region information department, Dmitry Kamal, “According to preliminary information, there was a shooting in a kindergarten. As a result, two children, a teacher and the attacker died.”
He stated investigators were working at the scene to establish further information. The proper age of the dead children was not known, but they would be between three and six years old, Kamal said.
One of the sources in law enforcement said to TASS that the shooting may have been the result of a “domestic conflict.”
According to sources in Russian law enforcement, the man walked into the kindergarten during the nap time with an Izh-27 double-barrelled shotgun. There was no guard on duty.
As per lawmaker Sergei Morozov, a former governor of the region, said a young teacher was killed and another injured in the attack, while the two killed children were born in 2016 and 2018, according to local reports.
Morozov said the shooter committed suicide.
Russia in 2021 was rocked by two separate tragic killing sprees- at a school in the city of Kazan and at a university in Perm, that spurred lawmakers to tighten laws regulating access to guns.
