Ex-cop father of college massacre ‘shooter’, 18, admits helping son buy shotgun ‘that killed six people’

The ex-police officer father of an alleged gunman whose frenzy killed six people at a Russian university has admitted giving his son £350 for the shotgun used in the attack.

Timur Bekmansurov, 18, was described as morbidly fascinated by a previous deadly school shooting earlier this year, telling his ex-girlfriend he thought it was “cool.”

He remains under armed guard at a hospital in Perm, in the Ural Mountains, where a leg has been amputated and is being treated for multiple abdominal injuries after being shot by a police officer.

Six people, including five students and a doctor, were killed Monday morning in the horrific shooting on the campus of Perm State University, in which terrified students jumped out of windows to escape the massacre.

Funerals have been held for some of the victims whose families have been contacted by President Vladimir Putin, who called it “a great loss not only to the families who lost their children, but to the entire country.”

Dozens more were injured when the gunman lashed out with a 12-gauge shotgun that sent students jumping from upstairs windows to flee.

Marat Bekmansurov, 40, a police officer before becoming a soldier, admitted to helping his son buy the weapon he allegedly used in the campus massacre.

Marat Bekmansurov, 40, a police officer before becoming a mercenary, admitted to helping his son buy the weapon he allegedly used in the campus massacre. “He single-handedly saved money for this weapon, and I added…” [around £350] for him to buy it,’ said the father.

Timur is now guarded around the clock in the hospital by 18 police officers, supported by OMON special forces.

His condition, with wounds to his leg and lung, liver and intestines, is described as ‘unstable, extremely difficult’.

“He single-handedly saved money for this weapon, and I added…” [around £350] for him to buy it,’ said the father.

The teen “obtained a hunting license and passed a medical examination, obtaining all the necessary documents to own a smooth-bore pump rifle.”

He went to a local shooting gallery.

An unnamed ex-girlfriend told reporters that Timur Bekmansurov was agitated by a shooting at a school in Kazan that killed nine people, a response that shocked her.

They broke up shortly afterwards.

“It was a shock to me, but Bekmansurov was constantly joking that it was cool,” she said.

Timur “didn’t condemn the gunman’s actions,” but said he “should have specified the number of people he wanted to kill.”

“He spoke negatively about humanity, explaining that people are ‘rotten,'” she said.

A funeral was held for Ekaterina Shakirova, 19, who was walking back from a university cafeteria with her friend Ksenia Samchenko, 18, when both were shot dead.

Also killed was Alexandra Mokhova, 20, who had wanted to become a math teacher. A social media post for Alexandra read: ‘Rest in peace our sweet girl.’

Another was Anna Aigeldina, 24, from Udmurtia, who was teaching at Perm State University, the scene of the barbarian attack.

Another victim was noted local doctor Margarita Engaus, 66, who had accompanied schoolchildren on a visit to the botanical garden of Perm State University.

The children all survived, and according to reports, she was hit when the gunman — wearing a black-painted World War II helmet — opened fire as he approached the university.

Yaroslav Aramlev, 19, an accomplished violinist studying robotics, was the only man to die in the massacre.

All but one of the six killed were women after the black-clad gunman attacked the university.  Among the victims was student Alexandra Mokhova, 20, (pictured) who wanted to become a math teacher

University students and staff locked themselves in rooms and the university called on those allowed to leave campus to do so.

It is the second shooting this year at an educational institution in Russia.

“In my first plan, I chose my school as the attack site, but at the end of March I decided to change the place,” gunman Bekmansurov wrote in social media posts before the attack.

“The school was too unpleasant a place to spend the last 10 minutes of my life and the children there don’t have enough space to retreat. I considered several options: shopping malls, hospitals, an army recruiting agency, theaters, the train station.

“All of these were not suitable because of my schedule. I needed a place where the greatest concentration of people would be on a Monday, around noon.’

Bekmansurov told how from May “it became more difficult to control myself.” He wrote: ‘I decided to contact my closest circle of friends less often. I completely stopped communicating with some people because I felt like I could harm them.’

He added: “I am not the first and will not be the last” to carry out such an attack. The ban on weapons will not save you, you will be killed by the cars, bombs, knives, everything at hand.

“Outcasts like me will destroy everything around you, because your world is rotten and you are rotten inside.”

In a disjointed “manifesto” posted before the shooting, the suspect wrote: “I still don’t know if I will end this myself or allow police officers (to shoot me).

“I think the second option is funnier.

‘I cannot rule out the possibility of being held. Ha, then I’d be a loser.’
