A student killed one policeman, a biology teacher, shot and wounded another policeman and took 20 pupils hostage before police overcame and arrested him Sunday in the northern end of Moscow.
“The person who took 20 people and a teacher hostage is a student in the upper classes at the same school,” an interior ministry spokesman said on Russia’s official television channel. “He has been neutralized and all the students have been freed.”
All of the children and teachers in the school have been evacuated from the school.
