Teen murders 19 in gun and bomb attack at college

Kerch FM

The investigators said that "after shooting other students and staff workers of the college, Roslyakov committed suicide", the Investigative Committee message reads.

"He wasn't aggressive, he was rather timid", Aksyonov said, speculating that Roslyakov might have "watched some movies" that inspired him to go on the shooting spree.

It was the greatest loss of life in school violence in Russian Federation since the Beslan terrorist attack by Chechen separatists in 2004, in which 333 people were killed during a three-day siege, many of them children, and hundreds were wounded.

The TASS news agency cited Russia's National Anti-terrorism Committee as saying the suspect's body has been found inside the college.

Witnesses said that the attacker fired shots but also spoke of hearing an explosion.

An unknown explosive device caused a large blast at approximately 12 p.m., the National Anti-Terrorism Committee of Russian Federation reported on its website. Kerch is located on the peninsula where a bridge links Russian Federation and Crimea, Reuters reported.

Raw footage: Emergency vehicles on the scene of an explosion at a vocational college in Crimea that killed at least 17 people.

Sergey Aksyonov, the head of the Crimean government, said the suspected perpetrator of the attack had taken his own life, according to remarks carried on Russian state television.

The handset is backed by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, coupled with 128GB internal storage that can be further expanded. Perhaps most importantly, the A9 does indeed contain four cameras , each serving a slightly different goal .

The Russian Investigative Committee's spokeswoman, Svetlana Petrenko, said the device went off on Wednesday in the canteen of a vocational college in the Black Sea city of Kerch.

Reports in the immediate aftermath of the attack at the state polytechnic college in the Black Sea city of Kerch on the eastern side of Crimea were chaotic, but the college's director suggested that a bombing was accompanied by a shooting rampage. "Started running and throwing explosive devices, bombing everywhere", Grebennikova said at a scene on October 17.

Sergei Aksyonov, the regional leader in Crimea, said that the student killed himself after the attack. Numerous victims were teenage pupils at the school, The Associated Press reported.

It said about 50 others were wounded, but gave no further details.

The attack at the Kerch Polytechnic College wounded around 50 in the city of Kerch, near the eastern end of the peninsula that Russian Federation annexed from Ukraine in 2014, the Investigative Committee said.

It was not immediately clear whether the casualties were from gunshots or the blast. "I saw people without legs, without arms".

The attack drew parallels to the 1999 Columbine High School massacre in the U.S. in which 12 pupils and a teacher were killed - with some saying the shooter used it as inspiration. They burst in five or 10 minutes after I'd left.

Was the Kerch college attacker inspired by the infamous Columbine massacre in the US?
