Brazil school shooting: Rio de Janeiro gunman kills 12

Thought I'd share this out of respect for our Brazilian YS friends.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-13003419
BBC News wrote:A gunman has shot dead at least 12 children at a school in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro before killing himself, police say.
At least 12 others were wounded when the man entered the school with two revolvers and began shooting.
The killer has been identified as 23-year-old former pupil Wellington Menezes de Oliveira.
President Dilma Rousseff wept as she condemned the school massacre - the first of its kind in Brazil.
The attack happened at the Escola Municipal Tasso da Silveira school in the western Realengo area.
Officials said Oliveira arrived at the start of the school day and got into the building by saying he had come to give a lecture, but then went into a classroom and began shooting.
Teachers barricaded the doors of other classrooms while children hid under desks.
Some wounded children escaped and alerted police, who rushed to the scene.
