The unidentified gunmen, who appeared to be between 20 and 25 years of age, shot and killed a worker at a nearby vehicle wash before their attack at the Raul Brasil school, police said.

At least eight people have been killed in a shooting incident that took place at an elementary school near Sao Paulo in Brazil, state military police said. He said authorities do not believe the two were former students.

Eight people - including six students - have been shot and killed by two hooded men at a school in Brazil.

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

Another shooting occurred shortly before the massacre in the vicinity of the school, when a person was injured during an apparent robbery attempt.

Despite strict weapon laws, gun crime is rampant in Brazil, yet school shootings are a rare occurrence. The two gunmen committed suicide later. The accused were seen entering the school and opening fire.

Gonçalves, the housewife who lives nearby, gave safe harbor to several students, including one boy who was shot in the jaw.

Mr Salles said the gunmen used at least one.38 calibre pistol, along with homemade bombs and a crossbow.

He added that the school had been evacuated and police were inspecting possible explosives left by the shooters.

Police work at the scene on Wednesday. "It is the saddest thing I have seen in my life".

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