Five students and the principal of a school here were killed on Wednesday after two men opened fire inside the premises of the building in the south-eastern city of Sao Paulo. Fox News reported that two young men entered the Raul Brasil elementary school, in Suzano, a suburb of Sao Paulo, around 9:30 a.m. (local time). The unidentified gunmen ultimately took their own lives after the shooting.

Dubbing the incident as an "a bleak scenario," Governor of Sao Paulo, Joao Doria took to Twitter saying, "I asked for immediate support for all the victims and their families. Very sad!" "I cancelled every schedule to accompany the rescue and care of the wounded," Doria added.

The investigation into the matter is underway. Further details are awaited.
