A gunman has killed three people, including two teachers, after breaking into a school building in southeastern Brazil.

Another 11 are injured after the incident.

Authorities say the gunman, who was not caught, was armed with a semi-automatic pistol and was wearing a bulletproof vest.

He picked a lock to get into a staff room before beginning his attack, police say.

Shocking footage from surveillance cameras shows the gunman walking toward the building.

Espirito Santo State Security Secretary Marcio Celante has confirmed that two teachers were killed and nine instructors injured in the attack.

The identity of the shooter’s third victim has not been released, and it is not yet known if any students were killed or wounded.

Both shootings took place at a public school and a private school, both located on the same street in the small town of Aracruz, Espirito Santo state.

The shooter covered his face, making it difficult to identify him, Celante said in the statement, adding that police are investigating whether he was helped by others.

School shootings are uncommon in Brazil but have become somewhat more common in recent years.

In a video posted to social media, Espirito Santo Governor Renato Casagrande said he was monitoring the situation and had dispatched authorities to investigate.
