Russian students leap from windows as mass shooter kills at least 8

Published

on

Chilling footage shows a black-clad gunman firing as he marches toward a Russian university Monday — as desperate students leap from windows to escape.

At least eight people were killed and more than two dozen were injured in the rampage.

The killer — identified as a student armed with a hunting rifle — was filmed as he opened fire at 11:30 a.m. while marching into Perm State University, where at least 3,000 people were on campus, officials said.

Wearing black tactical clothing, including a helmet, he appears to have fired his way into the campus, killing a security guard before he was able to trigger a panic button, The Independent said.

Students then used chairs and furniture to barricade themselves in rooms — as a stream of others were filmed desperately jumping out of second-story windows at least 20-feet high.

Some tried to climb down, while most just flung themselves out at the first opportunity, many landing awkwardly with loud cries of pain. Other footage showed dozens of students racing away from the shooter.

Student Lev Zenkov told The Independent that the shooting lasted for “twenty to thirty minutes.” 

“Everyone is in shock and tears,” he said, detailing how the gunman roamed the ground and first floors of the building.

The gunman was wounded after resisting arrest and was being treated in hospital, the Investigative Committee law enforcement agency said.

University spokesperson Natalia Pechishcheva had initially said the shooter had been “liquidated,” but later confirmed he was in police custody. 

The death toll, initially thought to be five, rose to eight later Monday.

At least 28 people were still being treated for injuries, with 19 reported to have also suffered gunshot wounds. It was not immediately clear if any of the other injured were those hurt while jumping.

Officials confirmed that the killer was a student using a legally bought hunting rifle, but did not identify him.

Local reports named him as 18-year-old student Timur Bekmansurov, who earlier posted a social media photo of himself posing with a rifle, helmet and ammunition.

“I don’t know how many I can kill, but I will do everything to take as many with me as I can,” he wrote in one post, according to The Independent.

He added that he targeted the university because it had “committed a serious mistake” four years ago, without elaborating on what it was.

“I want to leave as much pain in the world as I can so everyone I can’t kill will remember this day forever,” he said, according to East2West News.

Police identified 18-year-old Timur Bekmansurov as the shooter through a social media post of him posing with the gun and ammo.

He said he “liked causing pain to people” and was “unstoppable,” saying, “I detest myself as much as I test all of you.

“At least I will feel alive for the last ten minutes of my life,” he wrote, seemingly assuming he would not make it out alive from the slaughter.

He also detailed how he passed psychiatric tests to get his gun license, saying, “I could have fooled every psychiatrist,” East2West said.

The Kremlin would only say that the gunman was likely disturbed.

President Vladimir Putin instructed two ministers to go to Perm to help the wounded as well as the families of the dead, his spokesman told Russia’s Tass news agency.

“The president conveys [his] deep condolences to those who lost their relatives and friends as a result of this tragedy,” the Kremlin spokesman stated.

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

The DMV also put NICEBUNS, FATFANNY, GOTAPOOP and BENDOVER in the rear-view mirror.

One player unsuccessfully tried to score the plate YESDADDY, to no avail.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.

He said guidelines on what plate combinations are restricted can be found on the DMV website: https://dmv.ny.gov/learn-about-personalized-plates. Approximately 50,000 personalized and custom plates are sold per year, O’Brien said.
