Crimean Columbine: Mass Shooter In Russia Was Imitating Columbine Killer Eric Harris

A mass shooting followed by an explosion at a secondary school in the Crimean city of Kerch has killed at least 19 people and injured more than 50, including the lone attacker, according to local Russian officials.

In the chaos and confusion of the immediate aftermath — which included the Russian military arriving on the scene — there were wildly conflicting reports of either a gas leak explosion or a terror attack underway by a group of armed men; however, investigators have now described the event as a mass shooting by an 18-year-old student, who took his own life after shooting scores of others.

And it’s now emerging that the shooter may have been obsessed with the Columbine Massacre school shooters who took the lives of 13 people in 1999 in a suburb of Boulder, Colorado.

Prime Minister and Head of Crimea, Sergey Aksenov, confirmed to local Russian media, “The suspected murderer shot himself,” and added, “He was a senior student of the same college.” Even the suspect’s age and identity was subject to contradictory reports in the early hours after the shooting, per RT:

Russia’s investigative committee has named the suspect as Vladislav Roslyakov and said he was 18, rather than 22 as first reported. It added the incident was now considered a multiple homicide rather than a terrorist attack.

Social media images first published by Mash showing what purports to be the shooter, Vladislav Roslyakov, walking through the school are being compared to Columbine High School shooter Eric Harris — who in 1999 killed 13 and wounded over 20 more alongside Dylan Klebold in Boulder, Colorado.

Crimean shooter Rolyakov was apparently imitating Eric Harris with his white shirt and shotgun as shown in the unconfirmed social media photos of Wednesday’s attack.

According to RT, “It turned out that little more than one month ago, on September 8, Roslyakov had received a permit for a 12 caliber rifle.”
