SAO PAULO: Five people were killed and four wounded in a shooting in Carapicuíba, in the Brazilian state of Sao Paulo, police told AFP on Monday.

Unknown gunmen got out of a vehicle and opened fire against people who were at the door of a business that rents computers with Internet access, witnesses told police.

"Apparently this was a place where drugs were sold," a spokesperson for the Sao Paulo military police told AFP.

There were no immediate arrests and police said they were investigating the crime.

Carapicuíba lies to the north-west of the giant Sao Paulo megalopolis, away from major tourist attractions. (AFP)
