Aldo Fasci, security spokesman for the northern state of Nuevo Leon, said: “In the video, you can see the minor take out the gun, shoot the teacher and then another child.

“He is there for a while, pointing at other students, and a few minutes later he opens fire. We have no motive yet.”

Emergency personnel raced to the scene after reports of the shooting came in and heavily-armed cops swarmed the school.

Television footage showed ambulances and police outside the Northeast American School of Monterrey (Colegio Americano del Noreste), south of the industrial city of Monterrey.

No details have been revealed yet on the identities of those shot.
