    Student Gunman Kills 19 and Wounds Dozens at a College in Crimea

    The assault at Kerch Polytechnic College was initially investigated as a possible terrorist attack. But officials quickly reclassified it as murder after learning that the gunman, Vladislav I. Roslyakov, 18, was a fourth-year student at the college.

    There were no immediate reports of a possible motive, though a friend of Mr. Roslyakov said that he was a loner who had expressed an interest in the 1999 school shooting in Columbine, Colo., where 12 students and a teacher were killed.

    Teen gunman dead after school massacre
    "Chilling footage shows the suspected gunman Vladislav Roslyakov, 18, stalking the technical college corridors armed with a shotgun, reports The Sun.

    The teenager’s body was found in the building’s library, where he is believed to have committed suicide.

    Authorities said 39 remained hospitalised after the attack on the college in the city of Kerch on the peninsula annexed from Ukraine in 2014.

    The suspect’s mother, Galina Roslyakova, is a cancer nurse at a hospital that received some of the wounded.

    She was initially helping care for those allegedly shot by her son when investigators arrived at her ward to let her know her son was responsible and to interrogate her.

    She left the hospital with detectives.

    A local source said: “She is confused and cannot explain her son’s motives.”

    Regrettably, never, as the human heart is always in conflict with itself. And guns.

    The armed individual filmed by surveillance cameras at Kerch Polytechnic College during Wednesday’s mass murder is named Vladislav Roslyakov. He is apparently the one who killed at least 19 students and instructors, injuring dozens more.

    Eighteen years old, Roslyakov was a senior at Kerch Polytechnic College, enrolling at the school in 2015, according to Russia’s Federal Investigative Committee.

    Speaking to the magazine RBC on the condition of anonymity, a friend said Roslyakov “really hated the college because of its evil teachers, and he hinted that he would get back at them.” “He never showed any signs of aggression, he was a quiet young man who never had any problems [with the police], and he was getting a stipend,” Sergey Aksyonov, the head of Crimea’s local government, told the television network Rossiya 24.

    allegedly "inspired by" or interested in columbine? He was either just born or not yet born when that tragedy happened! The ripple effect... you never know how far reaching or how long lasting...

    What a sad sad day for this Russian community.

    If past school shootings, rampage killings, and terrorist attacks are any indication, Vladislav Roslyakov is likely an injustice collector/grudge holder. The reason is he stated he would vow revenge against teachers. It was a long list of resentment he had.

    So very sad!!! He clearly had a fascination/obsession with Eric Harris and Columbine right down to how and where he killed himself.

    Manhunt in Crimea for possible accomplice in school attack that left 20 dead
    "MOSCOW - Russian authorities in Crimea were searching Thursday for a possible accomplice of the student whose shooting-and-bomb attack on his vocational school killed 20 people and wounded more than 50 others, a top official said"

    “The point is to find out who was coaching him for this crime,” he said. “He was acting on his own here, we know that. But this scoundrel could not have prepared this attack on his own, in my opinion, and according to my colleagues.”

    "Most victims died from gunshot wounds, authorities said. Many others had wounds from an improvised explosive device that went off packed with shrapnel. Skvortsova said some victims had their legs or feet blow off by the explosion.

    “The kids' muscles have been 'minced' with small metal objects,” Skvortsova said. “In those who have their organs ripped apart, we are finding metal balls in kidneys, intestines, in blood vessels. That is how powerful the blast was.”

    "The young man's grandmother, Taisiya Roslyakova, told the Komsomolskaya Pravda daily on Thursday that her grandson was a kind boy who was always helping her with chores, unlike her son, the student's father, who reportedly was an alcoholic."
