A teenage gunman who went on a shooting spree and killed three people has been found dead after a huge overnight police hunt.
Danil Monakhov, 18, shot six people and killing half the number in the village of Bolsheorlovskoye, Nizhny Novgorod region.
Monakhov show his grandma, Galina Monakhova, twice after a row causing serious wounds.
He then went on to shoot and kill local resident Sergey Napylov, head of the local volunteer fire brigade, who tried to protect her.
Monakhov then went to the bus stop where he opened fire on Andrey Tikhomirov and Nikolay Seleznyov, killing both.
He also shot and wounded a woman, Valentina Zhogonova, before fleeing into woodland with two guns and 40 cartridges leading to a massive manhunt.
His body was found early today with gunshot wounds to his head some 600 yards from the bus stop.
He is believed to have taken his own life.
His grandmother’s arm had to be amputated after the shooting.
Two other gunshot victims are in hospital.
A neighbour said: “They are a very decent family and this boy was good.
“He played computer games.”
An ex-classmate said he “often watched videos about Columbine” and subscribed to many online groups about weaponry.

Reports say he was a lover of violent computer games and a fan of the perpetrators of the Columbine High School massacre in the US in 1999.
An ex-classmate said Monakhov had been previously investigated by the FSB security service after threatening a “terrorist attack”.
Other reports today say Monakhov was fond of guns and had a license, obtained within the past month.
He had been unable to join the army because of a heart condition.
A law enforcement source told TASS: “A preliminary investigation showed that Monakhov was interested in firearms, their tactical and technical properties, construction features, and history.
“He was also into computer games."
Drones were used in the search for the killer.
