The pair then shot and killed themselves.

"Eight people died at the scene, including the two assailants", a state military police spokesman said.

Sao Paulo Governor Joao Doria said as he stood outside the school that "our solidarity goes out to the families of the victims".

"I have just received the sad news that children were cruelly murdered in the state school Professor Raul Brasil, in Suzano".

Another ten people, mostly schoolchildren, were shot and injured, and several were in serious condition, said police, who lowered their estimates for the number of children killed and those injured late on Wednesday afternoon. "I thought [the sound] was from bombs", said teacher Sandra Perez.

Doria said the school had been evacuated and police were inspecting what appeared to be possible explosives left by the shooters. When I realized they were gunshots, I stayed there. "It didn't take long until police arrived".

Soap Opera Veteran Jed Allan Dead At 84
Beverly Hills, 90210 star Ian Ziering remembered Jed Allan , who played his father on the FOX show and died Saturday at age 84. Adolfo Larrue Martínez III, who co-stared with Allan on Santa Barbara , posted on Facebook: " Jed Allen walked on today".

Aged between 20 and 25 years old, the alleged attackers are not believed by police to be former students of the school that has some 1,000 primary and secondary students.

In April 2011, a former pupil killed a dozen school children and injured many more before turning his gun on himself at a school in the suburbs of Rio de Janeiro.

The men, identified as former students at the school in a suburb of Sao Paulo, also shot and killed the owner of a used vehicle business nearby before launching the attack on the school, authorities said.

Another shooting took place about 500 meters from the Raul Brasil school shortly before the killings at the school, but it was not yet clear if the two incidents were related.

Gun crime is extremely common in Brazil but school shootings are rare.

However, current Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro signed a temporary decree in January that made it easier for citizens to buy guns in an effort to overturn the strict regulations of the past.
