MOSCOW (AP) — Russian authorities in Crimea were searching today for a possible accomplice of the student whose shooting-and-bomb attack on his vocational school killed 20 people and wounded more than 50 others, a top official said.

The 18-year-old student, who authorities said later killed himself in the school’s library, was initially believed to be the only person involved in the carnage Wednesday at the Kerch Polytechnic College in the Black Sea city of Kerch.

Authorities haven’t provided a motive for the shooting. Teachers and classmates have described the attacker as a shy person with few friends.
