Gunman kills six people in mass shooting at Russian school

A gunman has killed six people and injured 20 others in a school shooting in central Russia.

The unidentified gunman got into the school in Izhevsk, killed a guard and some of the children before shooting themselves, officials said.

It’s not yet clear if they are among the dead.

‘There are victims among the children, there are wounded too,’ Governor Alexander Brechalov said.

The school, which teaches children between grades one and 11, has been evacuated and shut down by police.

Izhevsk is a medium-sized city of 640,000 people, located west of the Ural mountains, about 596 miles east of Moscow.
