Hmmm...something tells me they have strict gun control laws in Crimea.....so how did this happen? And I can't believe explosives are legal in Crimea...right? Student goes on shooting spree in Crimean high school, kills 17, wounds 50 MOSCOW — At least 17 people, mostly teenagers, were killed and 50 more wounded when a student went on a shooting spree in his high school in Russia-annexed Crimea on Wednesday, Russian authorities said. Russian investigators identified 18-year-old Vladislav Roslyakov as the attacker, saying he fatally shot himself after the rampage in Kerch, a city in the east of Crimea, which Russia seized from Ukraine four years ago. Reports had initially described the attack as involving explosives with possibly terrorist motives. Russian investigators had initially opened a terrorism probe into the attack, but later changed it to murder. “A preliminary examination of the dead shows they suffered from gunshot wounds,” Russia’s investigative committee said in a statement. “The majority of them are teenagers,” it added. -------------- He purchased an automatic rifle and cartridges last week, his classmates are cited as saying. Russia has relatively strict gun laws, and such shooting massacres are rare. In recent years, there have been several incidents involving students launching attacks with axes, knives and air guns.
