The TelegraphAt least 18 people have died and scores more injured Wednesday after an explosion went off at a polytechnic school in the Crimean town of Kerch. The Kremlin-appointed head of Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov, said the suspect was a 22-year-old student at the college. The suspect, identified in the Russian press as Vladislav Roslyakov, reportedly obtained a hunting license - allowing him to purchase hunting rifles and shotguns - early last month. A photo of Roslyakov weilding a rifle in a campus stairwell has made the rounds on social media. Reports suggest that, beside detonating an explosive in the school cafeteria, Roslyakov opened fire on fellow students and teachers. According to Aksyonov, the shooter killed himself during the attack. Russia’s investigative committee has opened a criminal case under articles pertaining to terrorism. Law enforcement officers arrive at the scene of the bombing Credit: TASS In January, 15 students were injured when two teenagers attacked their peers at a school in Perm as part of a Columbine inspired attack. Crimea, formally recognized by the international community as part of Ukraine, has been under Russian control since 2014 following Moscow’s annexation of the Black Sea Peninsula. Kerch is located on the eastern tip of Crimea, where a bridge to the Russian mainland recently opened. Videos from the scene circulated Wednesday on Russian social media show terror and confusion on the campus. One video shared on a popular telegram channel, Mash, featured a recording of a woman telling her friend about the explosion and possible shooters. “The college was blown up,” the unidentified woman began in her video, “We ran and kids just laid there. My friend was killed right before my eyes. I saw her fall and she didn’t move any more. I saw how the boys just fell.” Other unconfirmed reports on Russian social networks and in the local media feature similar accounts of possible shooters on the campus of the polytechnic college - an institute that specializes in vocational training for teenagers. A video published by local news outlet Kerch.com.ru showed the head of the school describing the events to someone on the phone as another Beslan - referring to a horrific 2004 terrorist seige on a school in North Ossetia that resulted in the death of over 300 people, many children.
