Russian school shooting: Teen, 19, who killed 9, suffers from brain disorder ...

The Russian school shooter who gunned down nine students and staff in Kazan yesterday suffers from a brain disorder and was recently dismissed from a local technical college for poor grades, the court heard today.

Ilnaz Galyaviev, 19, rampaged through his former school armed with a rifle and homemade bombs, causing pupils to leap to safety from third-floor windows. 

The seven students and two staff were laid to rest on Wednesday in the majority Muslim Russian region of Tatarstan, as Vladimir Putin called for tighter gun laws.

Family members wearing black and students of Elvira Ignatieva - a 26-year-old English teacher who reportedly died while shielding pupils from the gunman - laid flowers and read the Koran at her grave during a funeral ceremony.

Svetlana Petrenko, a spokeswoman for the Investigative Committee, which probes major crimes, said Wednesday that Galyaviev suffered from a brain disorder and had repeatedly sought medical attention for severe headaches.

'His family has also noticed aggression and a quick temper in his behaviour since the beginning of this year,' she said.

The gunman was detained within an hour of the attack and he was seen in interrogation footage leaked online claiming he was God and that he had 'a monster' inside him.

All the children killed were in Ignatieva's eighth-grade class and believed to be aged 13 and 14. The second staff member killed was a teaching assistant for younger students.
