  • Brazil school shooting leaves several dead

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

"We still can not tell if the cases are related", said Captain Cibele Marsolla, of the military police's communication department.

Aged between 20 and 25 years old, the alleged attackers are not believed by police to be former students of the school that has some 1,000 primary and secondary students.

"Bullying, they call it. ..." Globo reported that a witness said he saw one of the attackers with a gun and the other with a knife.

In some of the photos, he wore a black scarf with a white imprint of a skull and cross bones. The police said the injured are undergoing treatment at local hospitals.

The attack was carried out by two "armed and hooded" teenagers, according to police.

Students outside the school recounted harrowing attacks and seeing several bodies.

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

"We stayed there until the door was opened". "They told us to start running".

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

"I heard a lot of screaming", she said. "I only left when the police arrived".

Brazil is one of the most violent countries in the world with 64,000 murders in 2017, a rate of nearly 31 per 100,000 inhabitants - that is three times higher than the level the United Nations classifies as endemic violence.

Brazil's new President Jair Bolsonaro recently announced gun ownership controls would be loosened. Soon after being inaugurated January 1, Bolsonaro issued a decree making it easier for people wanting a gun to buy and possess one.
