MOSCOW (AP) — Russia’s top investigative body says it has identified the man who opened fire in a college in a Crimean town, killing 18 people and wounding more than 40.
The Investigative Committee said an 18-year old student identified as Vladislav Roslyakov arrived at the vocational college in Kerch early Wednesday afternoon with a rifle and opened fire. The investigators said all the victims have died of gunshot wounds.
The investigators had earlier put out a statement saying an improvised explosive device went off in the college..
The investigators cited CCTTV footage showing that the man opened fire on people and later killed himself. The investigators said they will now treat the incident as a mass murder and not as a terrorist attack.
