Russian media said at least eight children were among those killed in the attack on Tuesday.

The initial report said another suspect was in a standoff with police inside the school, but officials later confirmed that the teenager is thought to have acted alone.

He said a 19-year-old "terrorist" who was "officially registered as a gun owner" had been arrested in the attack, according to Reuters. Minnikhanov said it wasn't clear yet whether the gunman had accomplices or acted alone.

Distressing video footage shared on social media showed some students jumping out of the windows to escape the shooting.

Minnikhanov added that 18 students and three adults have been hospitalized with injuries of varying severity.
