The shooting took place in a public school in Suzano, a city in the São Paulo metro area, about 9:30 a.m., local time.

The governor of the state, João Doria, confirmed the attack on Twitter.

“I have just received the sad news that children were cruelly murdered at Professor Raul Brasil state school, in Suzano,” he wrote.

The motive is still unknown, but early reports suggest the shooters were teenagers and fired the shots at random.
