Aksyonov: Kerch college shooter could not have plotted attack alone

The college student who carried out a mass shooting and explosion attack at a vocational institute in the Crimean city of Kerch could not have plotted the entire incident single-handedly, Crimea’s head Sergei Aksyonov said.

"The fact that he acted alone at the scene is understandable. My colleagues and I believe, however, that he could not have plotted all the preliminary details all by himself," TASS cited him as saying.

Yesterday, a local student, armed with a rifle, went on a shooting rampage and detonated a bomb on the campus of the Kerch Polytechnic College. The shooter later turned the gun on himself and committed suicide. Subsequently, a criminal case was initially opened on terrorism charges, but was later reclassified as murder. Twenty-one people died because of the shooting and explosion at the Kerch technical college, including the gun-wielding teenage attacker who ended up taking his own life. Around 50 people were taken to local hospitals, with ten of them in intensive care units in grave condition.
