A shooting at an American school in the north-eastern Mexican city of Monterrey has left at least three people injured, officials say.

A student opened fire at the Colegio Americano del Noreste, injuring a teacher, another student and himself, a state security spokesman said.

The nationalities of those shot were not clear. Reports said the injured were in a serious condition.

Shootings at schools are extremely rare in Mexico.

Aldo Fasci, a security spokesman of Nuevo Leon state, called the incident unprecedented.

He said a video showed the gunman shooting the teacher and the student. He then pointed the gun at other students, before shooting himself.

“[This] is result of a situation that is happening everywhere. The children have access to the internet. This has happened in other countries,” he said.

Mr Fasci said it was not clear how the student got the gun into the school.

He added that Mexico once had a system in place to check student bags but it ended after parents complained.
