The Supreme Court of Russia’s Tatarstan Region has delivered a verdict in the case of a school shooter who killed nine people and injured dozens more two years ago. Ilnaz Galyaviev will spend the rest of his life in prison.
On Thursday, the 21-year-old was found guilty of murder and attempted murder of two or more people, as well as possession of explosives and deliberate destruction of property.
The shooter’s defense attorney had asked the court to exempt Galyaviev from criminal liability and send him to a psychiatric institution instead. The judge, however, sided with the public prosecutor.
Back in November, the shooter pleaded guilty to the murder charges.
