A high school student in Russia’s North Caucasus republic of Dagestan accidentally wounded two other students after he made a shot from an assault rifle in a school, a local police spokesman said on Saturday.
He said several policemen were invited to a school in the Tarumovsky district of Dagestan to deliver a lecture for children.
“A senior class student was examining an assault rifle that was left unattended for some time by one of the policemen after they finished their lecture. The teenager pulled the trigger making a single shot and wounded two students,” the spokesman said.
The children were hospitalized and an investigation into the incident was launched, he added.
