A Ukrainian man conscripted into the country's National Guard went on a shooting rampage that killed five people, officials said.

Artemiy Ryabchuk, 21, started shooting early on Thursday morning, the country's interior ministry said. It happened at the Pivdenmash aerospace plant in the central city of Dnipro, the BBC reported.

He then tried to flee, but was later discovered and arrested, the BBC reported. He had a Kalashnikov machine gun, the ministry said.

The death toll included four other soldiers, The Times reported. Five people were also injured, the ministry said.

No motive has been identified, and there is no suggestion that the incident related to Ukraine's heightened tensions with Russia. Russia has built up tens of thousands of troops and arsenal at Ukraine's border, and multiple countries have warned of an invasion.
