    Brazil School Shooting

    BBC News - Brazil mourns Rio school shooting victims



    The killings were carried out by Wellington Menezes de Oliveira, 23, who had been a pupil at the Tasso da Silveira school.

    Police say he went into a classroom with two revolvers and lined people up before shooting them in the head at close range.

    Security video footage shows children running down hallways to escape as he reloaded his guns.

    He shot himself in the head after being shot in the leg by a policeman, officials said.

    The 12 children killed were between 10 and 13 years old, and all but two were girls.

    A rambling suicide note was found on the killer's body.

    In it, he gave no motive for the killings, but left detailed instructions on how he wanted to be buried and asked God for forgiveness (Muslim).

    Police say Menezes de Oliveira destroyed his home computer before the attack to conceal how he had planned it.

    People who knew him described him as a quiet man with no friends who spent a lot of time on the internet.

    Wow, what a tragedy :( 12 children.

    Brazil has fairly strict gun control laws too, eh? At any rate, yet another case where the attacker immediately terminated himself and the attack once faced with real counter force (the shot from the cop).

    Brazil has very strict gun control laws to the point where it is virtually impossible to have a carry permit. There are 17 million firearms in Brazil including those in possession of the military and 9 million are unregistered. As in many other countries, the problem is the black market and illegal firearms, not legal firearm owners.
