Brazil school shooting: Deadly attack in São Paulo

Another 10 people, mostly school children, were shot and injured, with several in serious condition, said police.

Military police Colonel Marcelo Sales said the two attackers "shot at the owner of a gas station", who is now receiving hospital treatment, before entering the school.

The unidentified gunmen, who appeared to be between 20 and 25 years of age, shot and killed a worker at a nearby auto wash before their attack at the Raul Brasil school, police said.

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.

Doria said police arrived about eight minutes after they were called.

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.

Anxious family members congregated outside the school alongside firefighters and security services, an AFP photographer at the scene said.

According to reports, five children and two adults have been killed in a school shooting in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

"My friend was stabbed in the shoulder and my other friend was shot", she said.

"Then a lot of kids started running out, all screaming", he said.

Far-right President Jair Bolsonaro made relaxing gun control a cornerstone of his campaign past year.

School shootings are rare in Brazil, although the country is one of the world's most violent, with more annual homicides than any other. Soon after being inaugurated January 1, Bolsonaro issued a decree making it easier for people wanting a gun to buy and possess one. "We heard many students jumped the wall", Cabral said hopefully.

The wounded student could not speak.
