According to Globo TV, the two attackers started shooting inside the school and then committed suicide.
Prosecutors will investigate if the Suzano school shooting was an act of "domestic terrorism" — attacks by citizens against their own government or people. They want to know if any sort of criminal organization may have assisted the shooters. pic.twitter.com/EPk1x79seh— The Brazilian Report (@BrazilianReport) March 14, 2019
