The Rio de Janeiro Massacre

On April 7, 2011, the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro suffered an unspeakable tragedy when a gunman in his mid-20s walked into the school and opened fire on children, killing at least 12 people and wounding 22, according to preliminary reports from police. He then either killed himself or was shot down in a shootout with police. It’s reportedly the first event of this kind in the country.

Our hearts go out to you at Rio de Janeiro— Shootings of any sort are terrible enough, but when the targets are children in schools, the violence becomes a tragedy almost beyond comprehension
