10 people were killed in a school shooting in Brazil’s Sao Paulo state, law enforcement has confirmed. The suspects are believed to be two teenagers, who shot themselves after the rampage.

The deadly incident occurred on in the city of Suzano located in the southeastern Brazilian state of Sao Paulo on Wednesday.

The Military Police confirmed on Twitter that 10 people were dead and 10 others injured after the shooting. It did not elaborate on how many children died during the incident or whether the attackers were included in the figure. The tweet, however, has later been deleted.

The attack was carried out by two “armed and hooded” teenagers, according to police. Local media reported that they turned their weapons on themselves after killing  several students and at least one adult. 23 other people were injured.

A .38 revolver, a crossbow with arrows, as well as several Molotov cocktails and a “wired suitcase” were found by police at the scene. One of the attackers was armed with a firearm, while another wielded a knife, local media reported, citing eyewitnesses.

The assailants reportedly were former students of the school, yet the motive of the attack remains unclear.

Governor of Sao Paulo, Joao Doria, condemned the “cruel murder” of the children. The official arrived at the shooting scene shortly after the incident.
