Finland School Shooting, 12-year-old Finnish School Shooting Kills Student, Injures Others

Finland School Shooting – One student was killed and two other students were seriously injured after a student who was just 12 years old opened fire at a secondary school in southern Finland on Tuesday morning, according to the police. The youngster was responsible for the murder of one student and the serious injuring of two other pupils. After a while, he was hauled into custody by the authorities. The lower secondary school in the city of Vantaa, which is located just outside of Helsinki, Finland, was cordoned off by highly armed police officers after they received a call about a shooting incident at 9:08 in the morning. The city is located in Finland. There are roughly 800 children who call this institution their home.

The police have stated that both the perpetrator and the victims were 12 years old at the time of the investigation. When the suspect was taken into custody later on Tuesday in the Helsinki area, the police agency reported that a firearm was discovered in his possession at the time of his arrest. On the occasion of a press conference, the police said that one of the children who had been hurt had unfortunately passed away. According to Ilka Koskimaki, the Chief of Police of the Eastern Uusima Police Department, the other two victims had suffered injuries that were considered to be critical. Petteri Orpo, the Prime Minister of Finland, released a statement on X in which he expressed his “deep shock” at the shooting.

Over the course of the last few decades, Finland has been the location of two major school shootings that are responsible for the deaths of multiple people. During the month of November in 2007, a student who was 18 years old and equipped with a semi-automatic pistol opened fire on the premises of the Jokela high school in Tuusula, which is situated in the southern area of Finland. As a result, nine people lost their lives. His body was found to have lesions that he had caused himself, according to the findings.

A little more than a year later, in September 2008, a student who was 22 years old used a semi-automatic weapon to fire and kill ten people at a vocational college in Kauhajoki, which is located in the southwestern area of Finland. The college is located in the region of Kauhajoki. As a result of the shooting, he ultimately decided to end his own life. More than 1.5 million licensed guns and around 430,000 license holders are found in the country of Finland, which has a population of 5.6 million people, according to the information that was provided by the Ministry of the Interior of Finland. In the country that is located in the northern portion of Europe and has a small population, hunting and gun ownership have both been practiced for a very long time. The local police departments are the ones that are in charge of issuing permits for firearms that belong to members of the general public.
