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.
At least six casualties were confirmed and many others were injured during the shooting, the Russian Investigations Committee reported, after initially saying eight people were dead.
The gunman, a teenage male who was identified by the Investigations Committee as a student of the university, is alive and being treated in hospital, the Investigative Committee law enforcement agency said, contradicting an earlier statement from the university that he had been killed.

Video footage showed people jumping from first-floor windows to escape the building. 
“There were about 60 people in the classroom. We closed the door and barricaded it with chairs,” student Semyon Karyakin told Reuters.
Media footage shows a darkly-dressed individual striding up the path towards the university armed with a rifle.
Local media identified the gunman as an 18-year-old student who had earlier posted a social media photo of himself posing with a rifle, helmet and ammunition.
“I’ve thought about this for a long time, it’s been years and I realized the time had come to do what I dreamt of,” he said on a social media account attributed to him that was later taken down.
He indicated his actions had nothing to do with politics or religion but were motivated by hatred.
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.
Earlier this year a lone teenage gunman opened fire at a school in the city of Kazan in May, killing nine people and wounding many more.
