Six people have been killed and one injured in a shooting at a weapons store in southwest Russia. A 14-year-old and a 16-year-old were among those killed after a gunman arrived at the store in Belgorod by car, RT News reports. He reportedly attacked people outside with a semi-automatic weapon before entering the shop. He then fled in his car, RIA Novosti reports.

The car has been found and officials reportedly know where the man is. Special forces are on their way, says an insider. The suspect is 31-year-old Sergey Pomazun, who reportedly has four previous convictions, mostly theft-related. Some reports pointed to a second suspect; the two may have been father and son. The suspect may have been trying to rob the shop. (More Russia stories.)
