Shooting Range Instructor Shot and Killed by 15 Year Old in Russia

Shooting Range Instructor Shot and Killed by 15 Year Old in Russia

CCTV video from a shooting range in Russia shows a 15 year old student fatally shooting an instructor.

According to the info I got, the student is a 15 year old Russian boy who was a regular student at the range. On the day of the tragedy, he allegedly got in an argument with the instructor and ended up shooting and killing him. He then reportedly committed suicide by throwing himself under a passing train in Moscow.

Props to Best Gore member @refuse2renig for the video:

  1. Surprised he chose the train, instead of ending his life the same way by gunshot. Maybe possibly replaying over and over in his mind the true greatness and heaviness of what he had just done, his guilt and shame became irreparably changed. Tragic for both.

        1. He could’ve been in shock mode at first. Probably reflexive and not a planned shooting. Like if he didn’t have a gun in his hand he would’ve hit the instructor instead. But as those seconds turned into minutes, and probably realizing the finality of it all, was too much to bear.

          I’d still assume he had the gun on him, and would’ve used it even later. Unless… His death was reflexive as well. Impulsive. As with the shooting, there he is, standing on the tracks, reaching an epiphany of his fatal choice (s), the trains coming up and Bam. He jumps. Just as earlier, as the argument escalated, Bam. He fired.
          Terrible impulse control on that perspective. May have never known he ever had a problem with impulsiviness until this perfect storm perfected it. The right circumstances at the right time.

          Life sure is uncanny.

        1. “Hell yeah bro I agree with that.
          That’s what I would’ve done.
          Would’ve gave it the old college try.
          And have went out like Kevin Kostner.
          In 3000 Miles To Graceland.”

          “In the words of Jimi Hendrix.
          He heard his train a’comin.
          And died like that chick in Hostel.
          Who throws herself in front of the train.”

          1. I hear the train a comin’
            It’s rolling round the bend
            And I ain’t seen the sunshine since I don’t know when,
            I’m stuck in Folsom prison, and time keeps draggin’ on
            But that train keeps a rollin’ on down to San Antone..
            When I was just a baby my mama told me. Son,
            Always be a good boy, don’t ever play with guns.
            But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die
            When I hear that whistle blowing, I hang my head and cry..

    1. Nothing wrong with learning how to shoot firearms. I taught my daughters about handguns so they would be informed. The more informed/knowledgeable you are, the less likely there should be accidents. It’s like in all things, is how you use that knowledge.
      That’s just my opinion of course.

        1. That’s like learning defensive driving in Asia only. Shit happens everywhere. I’d hate to think that some weak-tit moral issue cost my family their lives so I have a .45 that is easy FOR ME to get to. Get a gun, learn how and when to use it, then hope you never need it.

    2. Russia, like Turkey has conscription. Mandatory military service for men aged 18-27. Countries like this introduce guns to younger teenagers in hopes of them being better prepared for service. Better they learn in a more controlled environment than on the streets.

      That being said, if military service is mandatory, I believe it’s important to make mental health monitoring mandatory as well.

      1. You are mostly right, but wrong on the critical point. Russian conscripts get rifles, not handguns. This is pure sport, and fairly rare. I grew up in Russia and I don’t think I ever met any one who was training in it.

  2. More importantly, did the train passengers get to their destination on time?
    Personally, I cant be doing with running late as it can have a knock on effect especially if it is an appointment or something. Because, if you’re late, then the next person in line could get quite angry and so on and so on. Some people’s anger could then snowball and cause them do to serious injury or harm to someone else (or their property). Then there would be a potential for an arrest, criminal proceedings & prosecution. Court proceedings can drag out for many months and be quite costly to both sides, too. If found guilty, a custodial sentence or hefty fine is quite likely. Not nice. Not nice at all.
    By the way, what sort of gun was it?

    1. I’ve thought before about how people (and also have in experienced it) would be hindered in their daily lives and their productivity diminished as the guy’s corpse takes time to be removed, but never on the anger snowball effect. It seems like a serious stuff, as I remember how I got pissed off when the subway was brought to a halt and it made me moodier throughout the rest of the day. But if the guy is intent on killing himself and everything is gonna end, he may either not give a fuck for it or be to stupid to think about the consequences of his killing or he may be a drama queen who wants to go out making a lot of noise, if you get what I mean.

  3. Idk why the duels where you got two cowboys with their back against each other and walking 10 steps and quickly draw….

    I’m almost willing to bet instructor was either knowing that what had just happened to him and was just pushing some issue over confident that it wouldn’t happen and underestimated the 15yr shooter
    And pushed the issue a little bit too much and thats the result….
    Either that or he totally wasn’t expecting it to happen…..

    Such could be the case too that that’s exactly what he wanted to happen….but I doubt it.

  4. Honestly i kinda understand why the guy did it…nothing worse in the world then somebody screaming at yoy touching you tring to show how to do it with force…

    this makes me made…dont if i would have killed due to consequancies but it makes me mad as hell…

  5. Instructor: No Ivan, you’re not ready for the flame thrower.
    Ivan: But I wanna shoot the flame thrower…NOW!
    Instructor: Listen you little shit, you’re not touching the flame thrower.
    The rest is unintelligible but Ivan showed up at the train station with a flame thrower.
