At least eight people were killed in a school shooting in Brazil's Sao Paulo state, local media report, citing police.

The dead included six students and two teachers, and several other people were hospitalized with injuries, according to Gov. Joao Doria, speaking a few blocks from the public school in Suzano, a suburb of Sao Paulo, Brazil's largest city.

At least 17 other people, mostly children, were also shot and taken to hospital, police said in a written statement.

The school has primary and secondary students, and the identities of the victims and the alleged attackers have not yet been released.

Before entering the Raul Brasil school in the Sao Paulo city of Suzano, the assailants, aged 17 and 25 and both former pupils, shot and killed the owner of a auto rental agency from which they had stolen a vehicle.

"I was in the classroom during our break. I only left when the police arrived", teacher Sandra Perez told O Estado de S.Paulo newspaper (in Portuguese).

Authorities say five students and an administrator at the school were killed.

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.
