At least five dead and six injured after gunman opens fire at Russian university

At least five people have been killed and a further six are injured after a gunman opened fire at a university in the Russian city of Perm, officials have said.
The shooter at Perm State University has since been “neutralised”, according to the independent Russian news agency Interfax.

Students and staff of the university locked themselves in rooms during the incident, and the university urged those who could leave the campus to do so.
The Tass news agency quoted police as saying that some students jumped out of windows of a building during the incident.
It is not immediately clear whether those reported wounded sustained injuries from the shooting or from trying to escape the building.
