Narrating the incident from his point of view, one of the pupils told G1 about the terrifying moments the shooter's onslaught on the school caused him to experience. "The boy entered the school dressed in black, shot the door, inside [the school] he fired another shot. The boys [students] ran to the court, but the instructor ordered them to leave and go to the back of the school, then everyone got around and managed to get out of the school". The source also confirmed that while the suspect was enrolled at the institution, he never showed up for class.

An inquiry into the incident has been opened by the police. The suspect's father, a police officer, was summoned to the police station to testify. He said that his pistol was stashed somewhere in the home and that he thought his kid knew exactly where it was. José Ferreira, the victim's distraught father, told the local media that he would have "put himself in front of the bullet to save his daughter's life."
