Crimea college attack kills 19

At least 19 people were killed and dozens injured at a college in the Black Sea region of Crimea on Wednesday when a student went through the building shooting at fellow pupils before killing himself, Russian law enforcement officials said.

Eighteen-year-old Vladislav Roslyakov turned up at the college in the city of Kerch carrying a firearm and began shooting, investigators said. His body was later found in the college with what they said were self-inflicted gunshot wounds. There were no immediate clues as to his motive in mounting the attack, which recalled similar shooting sprees carried out by students in US schools.

Soon after the attack, Russian officials said they were investigating terrorism as a possible cause.
