Students Explained the Shots Posted on Social Media and the Videos Captured

The students recorded the active shooter scene with their cell phones, the Independent newspaper reported. In the article, it was stated that the gunman approached the university’s building No. 8, which is a central hall where geography personnel are located, at around 11:30 am. The video shows students jumping out of windows to escape from the building.

Lev Zenkov told The Independent he was at a conference on the fourth floor of the building when the gunman entered. The article said it takes about 20 to 30 minutes. Kenkov remembered the gunman walking around on the first and second floors before heading to the chemical plant next door. “Everyone is in shock and in tears,” Zenkov told The Independent.

He said the police arrived within a few minutes and were accompanied by specialist units shortly after. The quick response has saved many lives, he said.

The Independent reported that Bekmansurov “seems to have made his way to campus and killed a security guard before the alarm went off”.

Semyon Karyakin, a sophomore geology student, told ABC News he was in an elevator headed downstairs when he heard the gunshots. The report said the elevator opened into the corridor the gunman had entered a few minutes ago.

“The doors opened, two girls ran in and were shot in the back,” Karayakin told ABC.

Karayakin told ABC that the students had gone up one floor, but the gunman had already gone up the stairs.

“We were lucky again because the elevator managed to close again and we were able to get out of there. I wouldn’t have spoken to you otherwise,” he said, according to ABC.

The group hid in a classroom and barricaded themselves until the police arrived, trying to get other students to safety, he told the ABC. Students and residents in the city of Perm told the BBC their community was “overwhelmed by the tragedy”. A makeshift monument filled with flowers, photos and toys was erected on campus in the hours after the shooting, and a priest arrived to offer support, the BBC reported.

One student told Russia’s Kommersant website that just before the attacker tried to enter the classroom, his teacher had locked the doors by tying the door handles together. “There was no key and the door was open. He tied the handles with a piece of cable. He tried to force the door. When he didn’t open it, he fired at the door and then the wall and kept walking along the corridor,” he said.

Two traffic cops were praised for their reactions, the BBC reported. According to the BBC’s report, Vladimir Makarov took the students and teachers to a safe place, and Konstantin Kalinin confronted the gunman and opened fire after he was shot.

“The young man fell to the ground. I ran to him, grabbed him, pushed his rifle, bullets and knife, and then started giving him first aid,” he said.
