Two hooded young men entered a school in Brazil with guns blazing Wednesday, killing at least six students and two school employees, according to reports.
The shooters wore masks when they entered the school, police said. The gunmen began firing away before ultimately killing themselves. Witnesses told Brazilian media they saw someone shooting a gun outside the school before going inside.
Other children at the Raul Brasil school, in Suzano, a suburb of Sao Paulo, were shot and were rushed to hospitals with injuries, Reuters reported. At least 10 people were injured, two of them in serious condition, according to reports.
Juliano Simoes de Santana, who lived near the school, told Folha de S.Paulo he heard shots in the morning.
"I live next door, I heard a commotion and I went there," he said, "I came in and I saw several children running out bloodied, in desperation, and a teacher, an employee -- everyone was running."
Colonel Marcelo Salles, commander of the military police, said the shooters fired at the owner of a jet near the school before they unleashed the attack on the students. The jet owner was being treated at a hospital, the commander said.
Salles said the shooters used a .38 caliber revolver, a bow and arrows and explosives.
