Two masked former students carrying a variety of deadly weapons burst into a school outside Sao Paulo Wednesday and left a bloodbath before killing themselves.

Police in Suzano say eight students and officials at the Raul Brasil school were killed. At least 17 were wounded. The two also killed the owner of a nearby used-car lot and stole a vehicle before attacking the school. One report said the owner was an uncle of one of the shooters.

Police say the two were armed with guns, knives, axes and a crossbow.

œIn my 34 years as a policeman, it™s the first time I see someone use a crossbow like that, police colonel Marcelo Salles said. œIt™s horrendous ¦ an unspeakably brutal crime.

The two former pupils were 17 and 25 years old.

Police say they shot at students in a gym and fired at others who were enjoying a snack break.
