It is noted that at the moment there is no clear evidence of the ties of the shooter with the extremist organizations.

"It could be a conflict with other students or teachers," the source said.

It is supposed that the attack was prepared during a few months. In August, Roslyakov turned 18, and in September, he passed the medical examination and got the license for buying the hunting weapons. The student bought Bekas .12 gauge shotgun and 250 shells in the local firearms shop. He used some of that ammunition during the training at Kerch shooting club. He took away the powder from other shells, thus making self-maid grenades and putting the buckshot and small screws in them.
