As it happened: Russia mourns deaths of seven children & two staff slain in bloody Kazan school shooting by teen gunman (PHOTOS)

Residents in the Volga city of Kazan have begun laying flowers for the victims of a shooting that left at least nine dead and more than a dozen injured at School No. 175. A 19-year-old former student has since been detained.

Rustam Minnikhanov, the president of the majority Muslim Russian region of Tatarstan, of which Kazan is the capital, has declared Wednesday to be a day of mourning in honor of those who lost their lives.
