Governor: 2 attackers kill 8, themselves at Brazil school

Five children are reportedly among the dead, as well as a school employee and a passerby.

Police said the two men, who they did not believe were former students at the school, entered the building and started shooting at about 9:30 a.m. local time.

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

Speaking a few blocks from the public school in Suzano, Mr Doria said: "The school is on lockdown".

School shootings are rare in Brazil, even though the country is one of the world's most violent, with more annual homicides than any other.

Far right President Jair Bolsonaro passed a law allowing people to carry arms soon after assuming power in January, delivering on a campaign promise.

Another shooting took place about 500 meters from the Raul Brasil school shortly before the killings at the school, but it was not yet clear if the two incidents were related. He immediately pulled a pistol out of his jeans and shot into a group of eight students, hitting at least two, who dropped to the floor. He then pulled out a hatchet and hacked at the bodies on the ground.

During the attack, Monteiro opened fire with a.38 caliber handgun and de Castro used a crossbow, de Campos said, adding that forensics would determine how each of the victims died.

Crime scene photographs released by police show Monteiro, his head lying in a pool of blood, dressed in black with a machete tucked in his trousers.
