Four, Including 2 Kids, Attacker Dead in Russia Kindergarten Shooting

At least four people, including two children, died after an armed man opened fire in a kindergarten in Russia's central Ulyanovsk region on Tuesday, 26 April.

Following the firing, the assailant killed himself, authorities said.

"According to preliminary information there was a shooting in a kindergarten. As a result, two children, a teacher and the attacker died," the head of the Ulyanovsk region information department, Dmitry Kamal, told news agency AFP.


Kamal said that the children who died were aged between three and six years, and that a probe was underway at the site of the incident to ascertain more details.

Lawmaker Sergei Morozov, a former governor of the region, said a young teacher was killed and another injured in the attack, while the two killed children were born in 2016 and 2018, RIA Novosti reported.
