He engaged with the police, prompting them to open response fire.

The assailant, a student at the Amur College of Construction and Housing and Communal Services, reportedly used a shotgun. "Also, according to early reports, three were injured", state-run news agency TASS reports with reference to the Interior Ministry.

The officers managed to block the attacker in one of the rooms, while evacuating students and lecturers outside. "Both have undergone surgeries, one of them is in critical condition and remains in the intensive care unit, the other one is in serious condition", Chief of the hospital's Polytrauma Center Vladimir Dudkin said, according to the statement.

At least one person has been killed and three others injured after an 19-year-old student opened indiscriminate fire at his classmates - and then killed himself - at a college in Russia's Far Eastern city of Blagoveshchensk.

"Two 17-year-old teenagers with gunshot wounds were admitted [to the hospital] at 11:00 (02:00 GMT)".

Russian police say a student has killed a fellow student and wounded three more in a shooting at a college before taking his own life.

The Russian Investigative Committee said on its website it had launched a criminal case into the shooting.

Investigators are yet to establish exact motives behind the attack, but initial reports suggest the shooting might've been triggered by an argument and personal animosity between classmates.

Blagoveshchensk mayor Valentina Kalita will gather an emergency commission later in the day to discuss security measures in educational facilities in the wake of the incident, a city administration source said.
