Seven Students Dies As Teenagers Open Fire On High School
The shooting happened at about 09:30 local time (12:30 GMT) when the students were on a break at the state school in Suzano, near São Paulo.
At least 10 other people have been wounded. Police say the hooded gunmen killed themselves after the attack.
The identities of the victims and the alleged attackers – who were said to be former students at the school – have not yet been released. The motive for the shooting is not clear, police say.
The school has some 1,000 primary and secondary students, aged between six and 18, and is located in downtown Suzano, some 50km (31 miles) from São Paulo.
“It’s a very sad scene, the saddest thing I’ve seen in my entire life. The teenagers who were brutally murdered,” São Paulo state governor João Doria said after visiting the school.
Only secondary students were reportedly at the school at the time of the shooting.
