(Scroll down for video) A teen boy was arrested after allegedly killing his teacher with a crossbow before going on a shooting rampage, police in Spain said.

The 13-year-old boy forced his way into the Joan Fuster school in Barcelona, before launching the attack.

According to the police investigation, the child came to the school armed with a knife and a homemade crossbow. The suspect first targeted the teacher and her daughter.

Both suffered minor injuries. Another teacher who heard the commotion, entered the classroom and was stabbed to death. He had only been working at the school for two weeks.

A manager at the school managed to disarm the child and detained him until police arrived. 4 people were taken to a hospital after being injured in the attack.

The child told investigators that he planned on killing 25 teachers and students. The boy told his classmates last week that he planned to kill teachers at the school, but they thought he was joking.

Police said that no charges will be filed as the boy is under 14 years old and cannot be held legally responsible for his actions.
