At Least 3 Dead, 11 Wounded as 16-year-old Shoots Up Two Schools in Brazil

The ex-student opened fire on a group of teachers first, killing two women and wounding nine. He then proceeded to a nearby school where he killed a young girl and injured two others, authorities in Espirito Santo said.

Footage aired on Brazilian media showed the teen dressed in military-style camouflage. Officials claim he had a swastika on his fatigues and used two handguns, both registered in his father’s name – who is a serving policeman.

Following his arrest, 3 days of national mourning have been announced with Brazilian president-elect Lula, who takes office on January 1, calling it an “absurd tragedy.”
