    According to sources in law enforcement, they received their first reports from residents and employees of the school about an incident there around 10:35am local time.

    A machete-wielding teenager fatally stabbed three children and two teachers at a day-care center in Brazil's southern city of Saudades on Tuesday, G1 news portal reported on Tuesday, citing the municipal Secretary of Education.

    The 18-year-old made his way into the day-care center for children aged between 6 months and two years and started attacking people at random, the G1 news website said.

    He then tried to commit suicide and was reportedly taken to a hospital in critical condition.
