Russia school shooting – level 2

27-09-2021 07:00

Last week on Monday, a man walked on to a campus at a university, and he started to shoot. The incident happened in the Russian city of Perm.

Some students and teachers barricaded themselves in rooms, while other students jumped from windows. The man killed six people, and he injured 28 others. Police said that they shot him, and then they arrested him. They also said that the man was a student at the university.

Earlier, the man said on social media that he wanted to hurt people. Police said that there were no political or religious reasons for why the man did it.

Difficult words: campus (the grounds and buildings of a school), barricade (to put things together to block someone), religious (related to a god).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
