All Indian students are safe and Indian Embassy in Moscow is in touch with authorities following a shootout that killed at least eight people at a university in the Russian city of Perm.

“Shocked at horrific attack at Perm State University in Russia; our deep condolences for loss of life and best wishes for early recovery of those injured. Embassy is in touch with local authorities and representatives of Indian students. All Indian students at Perm State Medical University are safe,” Indian Embassy in Moscow tweeted.

Students and teachers barricaded themselves inside the university building; others were seen jumping from windows. Police say they wounded and detained the attacker, who is said to be a student.
