Moscow — At least nine people were killed on Tuesday in a shooting attack at a high school in the central Russian city of Kazan, Russian officials said. The press service of the President of Tatarstan, of which Kazan is the capital, confirmed that at least four male and three female students, one female teacher and one other woman were killed. 

The regional president’s office said 20 people were injured, most of them students.

“The terrorist has been arrested, (he is) 19 years old. A firearm is registered in his name,” Tatarstan governor Rustam Minnikhanov told reporters after visiting the scene. “Other accomplices haven’t been established, an investigation is underway.”  

Russian news outlets aired clips from a video purportedly showing the shooting suspect speaking to police in a jail cell. The young man is heard shouting at officials, claiming he had recently realized he was “a god,” and that he hated “everyone.”

Video posted to social media during the attack showed at least two people falling or jumping from a third-floor window of the School No. 175 building, which was said to have about 700 students in attendance on Tuesday when the shooting started.

Authorities restricted entry to all schools and toughened security measures at educational institutions in Kazan after the gunmen opened fire on Tuesday, the city’s mayor’s office said.

Kazan is the capital of Russia’s Tatarstan region, about 434 miles east of the capital, Moscow.
