An unknown shooter has allegedly been “neutralized” after opening fire at a university in the Russian city of Perm on Monday, killing and wounding several people, the Interfax news agency reported on Monday, citing a source.
Eight people were killed and six more were injured during the shooting, the Russian Investigations Committee reported.
The gunman, a teenage male who was identified by the Investigations Committee as a student of the university, was killed as well during the incident.

Earlier, the Perm State University’s press service said four people had been wounded and that some students and teachers were locked in classrooms, the TASS news agency reported.
Video footage showed people jumping from first-floor windows to escape the building. 
Media footage shows a darkly-dressed individual striding up the path towards the university armed with a rifle.
Russia has strict restrictions on civilian firearm ownership, but some categories of guns are available for purchase for hunting, self-defense or sport, once would-be owners have passed tests and met other requirements.
The motive of the killings is currently unknown.
This is a developing story. Please check back for more details.
