  • Ambulances at school No. 175 in Kazan where at least one shooter opened fire

AT LEAST ELEVEN people including eight children were killed when two attackers opened fire at a high school in the southwestern Russian city of Kazan.

At least 11 people have been killed and many more wounded after one or more gunmen opened fire in a school in the Russian city of Kazan, the RIA news agency reported on May 11, citing the Emergency Services Ministry.

One of the shooters, a 17-year-old, was detained, the state-run TASS news agency cited its source as saying.

A teenager believed to be a shooter has been detained.

A source told the Interfax news agency that a second shooter had barred himself in on the fourth floor of the building.

Another source cited by the RIA Novosti agency said they had heard an explosion and could see smoke rising from the building.

"According to the updated information, 11 people were killed as a result of the shooting inside the school in Kazan", a spokesman for the emergency services said.

While school shootings are relatively rare in Russian Federation, there have been several violent attacks on schools in recent years, mostly carried out by students.

There were also reports of an explosion hitting the school after the shooting started.

In February previous year the FSB said it had detained two teenagers on suspicion of plotting an attack on a school in the city of Saratov with weapons and homemade explosives.
