Shooting at a Russian college: there are dead

In one of the colleges of Blagoveshchensk this morning there was a shooting, as a result of which one person was killed and three others were injured of varying severity.

As follows from the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia in the Amur Region, in the morning, at about 06.00 Moscow time, a traffic police unit on duty in the area of ​​Shevchenko and Krasnoarmeyskaya streets received a message about firing at the Amur College of Construction and Housing and Public Utilities, which is located nearby.

Arriving at the indicated place, law enforcement officers found a young man with a hunting rifle, who began to shoot in their direction.
In response, the police forced the shooter to hide in one of the auditoriums, where he subsequently committed suicide.

As follows from local media reports, the shooter was a 19-year-old college student Anton Zasorin, who came to classes with a hunting rifle IZH-18.

As for the circumstances of the shooting, the information is currently quite contradictory: according to some sources, Zasorin smoked in the corridor of the educational institution and started shooting after the remark; according to others, he was removed from the audience for being late and after that he returned and opened fire.

College guns of 17, 19 and 20 years old received numerous gunshot wounds. One of the young people is in critical condition.

A number of publications citing the Ministry of Internal Affairs indicate that the tragedy could have occurred as a result of a conflict between peers.

At the scene of the tragedy, there are currently all operational services, as well as representatives of the Blagoveshchensk administration. A special commission has been set up that will provide security in educational institutions of the city.

      But to find out who is planning and preparing such things, they will find weapons by anyone - at least at the teaching staff, at least at anyone - what personally prevents you from understanding this?
      Here, on the contrary, it’s more likely that although schools and colleges will still be zones without it ...

    And then! If a person conceived this, that is, it is likely that while he is looking for this weapon at the faculty, then, perhaps, factors will appear that will convince him otherwise !!!!
    Or you were offended as Sokolov, a professor, supposedly a great mind of a person, and without thinking twice, he launched four bullets into the girl’s head !!!!
    Say, he could kill with a knife or a stool !? But not everyone is capable of such a direct impact on the body, but he managed to shoot relatively far away so as not to get dirty, but he managed to run, then, however, he went off and went away from the fear of the perfect, but that’s another story!

      Didn’t you try to learn at least something?) Although for some reason, it doesn’t bother you to write posts, it’s noticeable, but the fact that there are such sciences as psychology, and much more, you don’t seem to have heard about them, factors of this will convince - dream on ...
      And about Sokolov this way, and so he had not previously been distinguished by a particularly normal character, and behavior, too, acquaintances from those circles spoke about his miscarriages at the end of the last century.
