Eight Killed In Brazil School Shooting

The Military Police confirmed that 10 people were dead and 10 others injured after the shooting.

Doria says the dead included two teachers and six students, and several more people had been hospitalized after sustaining injuries.

The shooting happened at about 09:30 local time (12:30 GMT) when the students were in a break at the state school in Suzano, near São Paulo.

Marcelo Salles, commander of police forces in Sao Paulo state, spoke just outside the school and said that in his over three decades of service, he had "never seen anything like this, it was an unspeakably brutal crime".

The men, identified as former students at the school in a suburb of Sao Paulo, also shot and killed the owner of a used auto business nearby before launching the attack on the school, authorities said.

Gov. Joao Doria says the two attackers were believed to be between 20 and 25 years old.

Among the banks receiving subpoenas is Deutsche Bank, which has been among the very few willing to do business with Donald Trump . The Justice Department, however, has held since 1973 that prosecuting a sitting president is unconstitutional.

Salles said the gunmen used at least one.38 caliber pistol and speed loaders, along with a crossbow and homemade bombs.

Kelly Milene Guerra Cardoso, 16, said she and other students took refuge in the school's cafeteria, locked the door and lay on the floor.

About 1,000 children attend the school, police said. "I only left when the police arrived".

Despite Brazil being one of the world's most violent countries, school shootings are rare.

However, current Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro signed a temporary decree in January that made it easier for citizens to buy guns in an effort to overturn the strict regulations of the past. "We heard many students jumped the wall", Cabral said hopefully. Soon after being inaugurated January 1, Bolsonaro issued a decree making it easier for people wanting a gun to buy and possess one.
