At least five students have been killed in a shooting at a school in São Paulo state in Brazil, police say.

One adult was also killed in the attack at the Professor Raul Brasil state school in Suzano.

Two “armed and hooded adolescents” had carried out the attack, police said. Media reports said both of the gunmen were also dead.

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

The shooting happened at about 09:30 local time (12:30 GMT).

“When I arrived at the school… it was chaotic. Teachers, workers, everybody was running,” Juliano Simões de Santana, who lives near the school, told Folha de S.Paulo newspaper (in Portuguese).
