Gunmen opened fire at a rock concert in a Moscow suburb Friday killing at least 100 people, wounding 187, and setting off an inferno in the theatre, authorities have said.

In leaked videos of the attack, gunmen dressed in camouflage uniforms opened fire and detonated explosives in a big concert hall in the outskirts of Moscow.

The fire quickly spread through the Crocus City concert hall in the Krasnogorsk suburb in the north of the Russian capital, which can hold several thousand people and has hosted top international artists.

“According to preliminary information, 100 people were killed and more than 187 were injured as a result of a terrorist attack in the Crocus City Hall,” according to the FSB security service, quoted by Interfax news agency and other Russian media.

Authorities said a “terrorist” investigation had been started and President Vladimir Putin was receiving “constant” updates on the attack, his spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Russian news agencies.

Telegram news channels Baza and Mash, which are close to security forces, showed video images of flames and black smoke pouring from the hall.

Other images showed two men walking through the hall with at least one person left on the ground near the entrance. Concert-goers were also seen hiding behind seats or trying to escape.
