Kerch FM

At least 18 people, majority young, were killed and over 40 injured in a bomb and shooting attack at a college in Crimea that local officials said was carried out by a student.

"It´s a colossal tragedy, 18 people died, and 40 more injured, for the time being", Aksyonov told Rossiya 24 channel, after authorities earlier said 50 people were injured.

The blast was initially thought to have been caused by a gas canister but Russia's anti-terror agency, the National Anti-Terrorism Committee (NAC), said an "unknown explosive device" was used.

The National Anti-Terrorism Committee's spokesman Andrei Przhezdomsky said the building is now being combed for other explosive devices.

Russian President Vladimir Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told reporters that officials are looking into a possible terrorist attack.

Peskov said Putin has instructed investigators and intelligence agencies to conduct a thorough probe and offered condolences to the families of the victims.

The shooter was later identified as Vladislav Roslyakov, who officials said was a local resident.
