The group of affected students was next to a beauty salon near the center when a vehicle approached and began shooting at them shortly after 11:30 a.m. local time (4:30 p.m. GMT), the local police told the media.
Two 15-year-old girls and two 16-year-old boys, who are in stable condition, were injured.
Police officers who were in the area heard the shots and went to the scene immediately.
The open investigation tries to determine the reason for the attack, if any of the teenagers were its objective and if there were previous incidents in the educational center, and has agents deployed in the area in search of witnesses and information.

This same Wednesday, US President Joe Biden considered that more actions should be taken to control firearms in the country, after last night’s shooting at a Walmart supermarket in Virginia where six people were shot dead by an employee who ended up committing suicide.
