10 dead, including six kids, in 'unspeakably brutal' Brazil shooting; 17 hurt

A man was injured in another shooting near the school earlier, but police said they were still investigating if both cases were connected. He says authorities don't believe the two were former students.

The assailants reportedly were former students of the school, yet the motive of the attack remains unclear.

"When I arrived at the school.it was chaotic".

"We were at recess and eating like normal and we heard three pops, then we tried to run to jump over the walls", Rosni Marcelo Grotliwed, a 15-year-old student, told Brazillian media outlet G1 news portal.

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.

"This is the saddest day of my life", de Campos said, speaking to reporters outside the school in the Sao Paulo suburb of Suzano.

In 2011, 12 students were killed by a gunman who roamed the halls of a school in Rio de Janeiro, shooting at them.

Horacio Pereira Nunes, a retiree whose house is next to the school, said he began hearing shots around 10 a.m.

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

Marilene Gonçalves, a 51-year-old housewife, said she saw children fleeing the school, and that she gave safe harbour to several, including one boy who was shot in the jaw.

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. Soon after his January 1 being inauguration, Bolsonaro issued a decree making it easier to buy a gun.

"He is a smart kid". "Maybe that's what happened".
