A 12-year-old boy was at the height of classroom gun rampage when he shot one dead and sent two others to hospital this morning.

Why He Shot Them

The shooter and the victims were all 12 years old, no one what prompted the gun attack yet.

Police initially said that three minors were injured in the attack and taken to hospital. Meanwhile, one had died instantly after being shot – chief of police Ilkka Koskimaki from the Eastern Uusimaa Police Department later confirmed it.

‘The other two were seriously wounded,’ he said.

At The Scene

Heavily armed police rushed to the scene after receiving a call about a shooting incident at 9.08am local time. 

The male suspect was later detained, police said, with Finnish broadcaster MTV Uutiset reporting that police caught up with the suspect a 50-minute walk from the school in the direction of Helsinki to the south.

Video circulating on social media showed two police officers kneeling at the side of the suspected shooter who was lying face down on a sidewalk, with what appears to be a firearm on the ground.

One witness described seeing the ‘small’ and ‘hooded’ minor drop something to the floor before kneeling down as police arrived to arrest them.

The Suspect is Under Investigation

The suspect was found in possession of a firearm, and is now under investigation for murder and two attempted murders.

Nevertheless, the suspect is unlikely to be prosecuted on account of their age, with the minimum age of criminal liability in Finland being 15.
