At least eight people were killed in a school shooting in Brazil's Sao Paulo state, local media report, citing police.

In addition to the five kids, one adult who worked at the Professor Raul Brasil school in Suzano, on the outskirts of São Paulo, was killed as well as a person standing outside the building.

Authorities identified the attackers as 17-year-old Guilherme Taucci Monteiro and 25-year-old Henrique de Castro. He said authorities didn't believe the two were former students.

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

Mr de Campos said police did not know why the pair attacked the school.

He said it was not yet known whether the assailants were former pupils at the school.

The attack comes after Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro announced that the country's gun ownership controls would be eased.

The dead included six students and two teachers, and several other people were hospitalized with injuries, according to Gov. Joao Doria, speaking a few blocks from the public school in Suzano, a suburb of Sao Paulo, Brazil's largest city.

Salles said the gunmen used at least one.38 caliber pistol and speed loaders, along with a crossbow and a compound bow and arrow.

A homemade video taken during the shooting and aired by Globo TV showed children screaming, running and begging for their lives as loud shots were heard all around.

In the 1999 attack on Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, two students killed 13 people. Police arrived eight minutes after the shooting started and did not confront the gunmen, who had already killed themselves, he said.

Despite strict weapon laws, gun crime is rampant in Brazil, yet school shootings are a rare occurrence.

São Paulo state governor João Doria tweeted that the victims had been "cruelly murdered".

"It's a very sad scene, the saddest thing I've seen in my entire life".
