A lone gunman opened fire in a school in the Russian city of Kazan during the mid-morning classes killing seven children and two adults and injuring twenty others, in what Moscow is calling a terrorist attack.

Shots, which sounded like explosions, rang out on the third floor during the second period classes, according to witness statements. Students were seen jumping from third story classrooms hoping to escape the 19-year-old gunman. Two of the seven eighth graders died from injuries sustained during the fall.

Russian President Vladimir Putin called the action a terrorist attack and immediately called for the legislature to draft even stricter gun laws adding additional restraint to the already extremely limited availability of weapons to the public.

"Russia's laws on civilian gun ownership are considered strict. To obtain a license for hunting and sport firearms, applicants are required to pass psychological exams. It is illegal for Russians to own guns that shoot in bursts or have magazines with more than a 10-cartridge capacity," The Washington Post reported.

The suspect, a former student, who owned his weapon legally, was taken into custody. After a search of his home authorities found had a manifesto which he claimed to be god and planned a mass casualty, mass shooting, before his death to prove his power.

Kazan is approximately 500 miles from Moscow. The region is known for a large Muslim influence. School shootings are sporadic in Russia. In 2004, in Beslan, Russia, a single school shooting resulted in 330 dead, dozens injured and a lifetime of suffering for the survivors.
