35 year old Romeo Garcia Vieira who worked as cabinet adviser in Sooretama, in the North of Espírito Santo, Brazil was gunned down by an assassin on September 30, 2013 near his house on Rua Joaquim Marques. The hit was caught on CCTV cameras.
In the video, the victim walks down the dimly lit street at night when a car passes him and stops. Sensing something was amiss, the deputy tried to run, but was mowed down by rapid gunfire. Police said the assassin shot him 14 times with a .380 calibre pistol – four times in his left leg, twice in the back, once in the left arm and seven times in the neck. From the video it looks like the close range coup d’grace shot was to the head, but apparently not.
The Judicial Police Department of Linhares spokesperson said the crime may have been politicaly motivated. The suspects have not yet been identified.
