In the intensive care unit of the hospital of the Russian city of Izhevsk, the capital of the Udmurt Republic of the Russian Federation, two more victims of 34-year-old local resident Artem Kazantsev died of gunshot wounds.

This brings the total number of people he killed in high school to 17. 

This is reported by the publication "Fontanka" with reference to the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation.

In total, there were 23 people on the list of victims at the hands of the mass murderer, including children aged 7 to 16.

Most of the schoolchildren and guards were hospitalized with gunshot wounds.

It is known that the killer was diagnosed with "indolent schizophrenia" back in 2011.

He last saw a psychiatrist a week ago.

A spontaneous memorial was formed near the fence of school No. 88 in Izhevsk, where this tragedy occurred.

Residents of the city carry flowers and toys in memory of the dead.
