At least six people were killed and 28 were wounded after a gunman opened fire at Russia's Perm State University on Monday, investigators said.

Driving the news: The Investigative Committee of Russia identified the shooter as a student but has not released a name. The committee said the suspect was injured while resisting arrest and was taken to a "medical institution."

  • Investigators said the suspect purchased the gun in May.
  • Of the 28 wounded, some "were hospitalized with injuries of varying severity," per the committee.

State of play: Students and university staff locked themselves in rooms, and the university instructed those who could to leave the campus.

  • The university has around 12,000 enrolled students and approximately 3,000 were on campus during the shooting, per AP.

What they're saying: Russian President Vladimir Putin "conveys [his] deep condolences to those who lost their relatives and friends as a result of this tragedy," a Kremlin spokesperson said, according to the state's Tass News Agency.

Editor's note: This story has been updated to include new information from the Investigative Committee of Russia, which revised the death toll from eight to six.

Trump ally Steve Bannon failed to show up for a deposition before the Jan. 6 select committee on Thursday, paving the way for the House panel to seek criminal charges against him for defying a congressional subpoena.

Why it matters: It's the first major test for how the committee will respond to witnesses' refusal to cooperate, an obstacle that stalled countless Democratic investigations during the Trump era by triggering protracted legal battles.

Obama says Powell exemplified what America "can and should be"

Former President Obama called Colin Powell an "exemplary soldier and an exemplary patriot" in a statement honoring the former general following his death from COVID-19 complications on Monday.

Why it matters: Powell, the first Black U.S. secretary of state, was known as a Republican but played a critical role in helping Obama get elected in 2008.
