Moscow: At least 13 people were killed, including seven children, in a shooting at a school in the Russian city of Izhevsk on Monday, TASS news agency reported, citing the Russian Investigative Committee.

According to the committee, 14 children and seven adults were injured in the attack at the No. 88 school located near the city administration building of Izhevsk, the capital city of western Russia's Udmurt Republic.

It was reported earlier that nine people were killed and about 20 others wounded in the shooting.

The shooter committed suicide and his body has been found, the committee said, adding that he was wearing a black T-shirt with Nazi symbols and a balaclava.
