Teen arrested after deadly school shooting in Kazan, Russia”

At least nine people, eight students and a teacher, have been killed after two unidentified shooters opened fire at a high school in Russian Federation.

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

Local media reported that two unidentified attackers opened fire at the school in the Russian city of Kazan.

Dozens of ambulances lined up at the entrance to the school after the attack, with access to the building fenced off by police.

The shooting took place in Kazan, roughly 700km east of Moscow.

Russian President Vladimir Putin at the time blamed the attack on "globalisation" and online communities dedicated to American school shootings which promoted "fake heroes".

The shooting happened at School No. 175 on Tuesday. "We were led out through the back door to the yard".

Officials have confirmed eight deaths.

Mr Minnikhanov said the victims included four male and three female eighth-grade students.

"Eight schoolchildren and a teacher were killed", a source told the Interfax news agency.

He told reporters outside the school that, in addition to the fatalities, 12 children and four adults were being treated in hospital.

Another, identified as a 19-year old former student, has been detained, according to local media outlet Business Online.

The regional Interior Ministry has denied that there were any accomplices after initial reports said that officers had killed a second shooter.

One video on social media captured a teenager lying on the ground apparently being detained outside the building.

Ten more people were injured, said state news agency TASS.

"According to preliminary information, the second attacker in the school in Kazan who remained in the building was killed", the TASS state news agency reported, citing a law enforcement source.
