    A fourth-year student exploded a bomb and opened fire on fellow students on Wednesday at Kerch Polytechnic, a vocational school for teenagers, killing 21 people and wounding over 50.

    The attack, the first of its kind to hit Russia's Black Sea peninsula, was initially treated as an act of terrorism but was later reclassified as mass murder. The shooter killed himself in the college library.
