The teenage girl was allegedly trying to kill one of the teachers, according to local news outlet Ostro. One of the bolts went through the unnamed teacher’s hand, while another teacher, also unnamed, suffered unspecified injuries.

The girl also allegedly entered into several classrooms in a row while smoking a cigarette and fired randomly, according to local media outlet Rbk Ukraina. She had reportedly been a student at the school for some time but was no longer a pupil there at the time of the incident.

Responding police officers found the girl to be mentally distressed, with cuts on her hands. She is reportedly being tested for the presence of alcohol and drugs in her blood.
