Harrowing footage shows students jumping from windows as black-clad gunman kills 5 in uni rampage

STUDENTS were seen jumping from windows of a Russian university today after a gunman held a key building under siege. 

Shots were heard at Perm State University in the Urals and initial reports said five were killed  and more than  ten wounded. 

A lone gunman was seen walking into the building holding a clearly visible firearm. 

“When the people saw the shooter and heard the shots, some managed to leave the building, others locked themselves in classrooms,” said one account. 

Many students were seen jumping after climbing out of a second floor window.

The university flashed a message to frightened staff and students saying:  “If you are currently inside the university, please, try to shut yourself from inside the room, and stay inside. 

“If you are on the campus, please leave if  possible.

“If  you are on the way to the university - TURN BACK”

The gunman - named in some reports as Timur Bekmansurov, 18, a student - was later reported to have been overpowered. 

The university said he was detained alive but seriously wounded.

Other accounts said he had been killed but these were not immediately confirmed.

In messages sent by the suspect before the siege, he was quoted saying he “liked causing pain to people”.

He described himself as “unstoppable”

“I could have fooled every psychiatrist,” he said of a test to get his gun license. 

“At least I will feel alive for the last ten minutes  of my life,” he wrote.  

“I detest myself as much as I test all of you.” 

He said: “I want to leave as much pain in the world as I can so everyone I can’t kill will remember this day forever….

“I will do all in my power to kill as many as I can.

“Only a few of you deserve to live.”

Fleets of ambulances arrived at the campus. 

The shooter had been armed with a Turkish-made 12-caliber Huglu rifle.

His messages suggest he had been planning a massacre for many months, but only recently decided to carry it out at the university.
