SAO PAULO (AP) — Sao Paulo state authorities say eight people were killed in a school shooting on the outskirts of Sao Paulo, Brazil’s largest city, including two student shooters.

Images broadcast by local television stations showed dozens of people outside the school, along with police and fire department vehicles.

TV Globo reported that witnesses said shots were fired by two people inside the school.
