MOSCOW - Was it the influence of video games? A breakdown in respect for authority? Cuts in mental health services? In a phenomenon all too familiar to Americans, Russians searched for answers Monday after a 15-year-old student at a Moscow high school fatally shot a teacher and a police officer and held a class of 29 captive until he was persuaded by his father to release those in the room, officials said. Police then arrested him. The student reportedly was armed with a shotgun and possibly another weapon.

In retrospect, with a new U.S.-Russian Cold War all but declared, it might just be seen as the first--if unofficial--shot across America's bow. Two years ago, a gunman leaped from a vehicle in front of the U.S. Embassy in Moscow and aimed a grenade launcher at the building's mustard-colored walls. When the launcher jammed, he pulled out a second, which also jammed. Then he hoisted a semiautomatic assault rifle and, over the heads of a crowd of protesters, sprayed the facade with bullets.

It was the middle of the night when Alexander Kuzminykh, a 19-year-old sailor, attacked a sentry aboard the nuclear submarine Vepr and killed him with a chisel. Grabbing the guard's AK-47 assault rifle, the sailor then killed seven other crew members and locked himself in a torpedo bay. For 20 hours, the disturbed teenager held control of the submarine at a naval base near Murmansk last month.

A man identified as a Russian soldier was shot and wounded on the grounds of the U.S. Embassy compound after breaking in and apparently trying to steal a car, officials said. The report conflicted with that given by Russian police, who said two soldiers broke into the embassy and were stopped by a Marine guard, who opened fire, the Interfax news agency reported. One man was wounded and was turned over to Russian authorities. Interfax identified him as Yevgeny Taynakov, 23.
