NFTV: International Desk: Russia: A mass shooting incident took place in Perm State University ( PSU) in Russian Federation allegedly carried out by 18-year-old Timur Bekmansurov . Footage purportedly taken at the scene showed people escaping from a building through windows.
The incident was reported at Perm State University, one of the oldest universities in the Urals. At least four people have been injured, media reported, citing university authorities.
The university’s social media handle alerts everyone who is currently on campus to leave if possible, or lock themselves inside a room. The message told people on their way to the campus to immediately turn back.
A video published on social media apparently taken at the scene showed people escaping through the windows.
Another video taken from inside the building appears to show an armed person dressed in black and wearing a helmet slowly walking across the campus as horrified people express their shock.
Unconfirmed reports say the shooter is an 18-year-old lone-wolf attacker who left a note describing his act on social media. He reportedly barricaded himself in one of the rooms in the university buildings that he targeted.
Some media cited sources as saying that the gunman was killed by police officers responding to the shooting
