The Brazilian authorities announced this Saturday the death of a teacher injured the day before by a young man who shot two schools in the southeast of the country, bringing the death toll from the tragedy to four.

Mid-morning on Friday, a 16-year-old alumnus, wearing Nazi symbols, broke in and opened fire at two schools in Aracruz, a coastal municipality in the state of Espírito Santo, about 600 kilometers northeast of Rio de Janeiro.

Three people died and eleven others were injured, according to the first balance given then by the authorities.

“Unfortunately, the Aracruz tragedy has not yet come to an end. With deep regret we confirm the death of another victimProfessor Flavia Amboss Merçon”Governor Espiritu Santo, Renato Casagrande, tweeted on Saturday.

Authorities had reported Friday that three teachers and a student whose age was not disclosed remained in serious condition.

On Saturday they had not given a new balance of the wounded.

The attacker, son of a policeman, He will face charges of murder and attempted murder.Espiritu Santo police reported.

Arrested at his home shortly after the attacks, he was taken to a state center for adolescents, police said.

This Saturday relatives watched over the other three deceased people, including a 12-year-old girl, according to local media.

“My daughter was always light and love. I lost my daughter to hate,” the teenager’s mother, Thais Sagrillo, told the Globonews channel.

The attack was the 12th school shooting in Brazil since 2002according to a survey by the Sou da Paz Institute.

With his face covered and a swastika on his camouflage clothing, the young man invaded the Escola Primo Bitti, a public primary and secondary school, from which he was transferred in June, according to investigators.

Images from a video from security cameras show him firing a few shots, without stopping his march.

Then, he went to the nearby Praia de Coqueiral Educational Center, a private center for pre-school through secondary education, where he murdered the teenager.

The two weapons he used in the attack belong to his father, a policeman, and one of them was his service weapon, the authorities said on Friday, who are investigating whether the young man, who was under “psychiatric treatment”, has links with extremist groups.
