Dude, Brazil is fucked up – everybody knows that – but seeing this dude shoot a man on the ground in the face at such close range, in complete cold blood seemed a bit over the top even for Brazil. Well, maybe not for Brazil…
I’m guessing the man who took the shot was beat up first – perhaps that’s why he was unable to get off the ground. Than the guy in white baseball hat cocks his handgun, stoops over the victim and presses the trigger. The first attempt doesn’t fire, but the second puts a bullet straight in the man’s face. Despite the severity and sheer brutality of the attempted murder, the wounded man allegedly survived the headshot.
The best part about this video – the victim has no flip flops. LMFAO!
Brazil, you’ve just outdone yourself. Perhaps it’s because the attacker did not even winch, perhaps it’s because he was completely unfazed by a rolling camera – whatever it is, it makes the video super brutal despite the censorship. I’m never going to Brazil, that’s for fucking sure. The incident happened before a bar in Joao Pessoa.
Some additional information resurfaced regarding this murder attempt: the victim’s name is Rodrigo Ferreira da Silva (like there was any doubt). He was shot on Sunday March 18, 2012 in front of Jardim Veneza (Venice Garden) in João Pessoa. Rodrigo Ferreira da Silva said that a fellow with whom he used to have encounters in various bars had a beef with him for over a year. On the night of the attack, the fellow hired a contract killer to do the dirty work. Since victim survived, all I can say is that even though cold bloodied, the hitman is otherwise pretty useless as a contract killer.
UPDATE BY BRAZILIAN DA SILVA
My Brazilian gore connection, the same Brazilian da Silva who brought us this video provided further information about what happened here:
The man on the ground was trapped by six other men who came back for revenge on an old trivial struggle, they shot him four times and he was still able to run a few meters and jump a few walls to get to the actual place where this is filmed and ask for help. What he did not know is that the cold killer would came back to finish the job for the sheer panic of the reporter. This fact occurred in city of João Pessoa in the state of Paraíba, poor (and metropolitan!) region of northeastern Brazil.
Thank you so much, Brazilian da Silva:
I now have full version of the video and it’s uncensored so I’m replacing the original, censored version with it. It’s complete, including aftermath when an ambulance comes and the shot dude moves, proving that he’s not dead. You can see the paid assassin ask whom to off and once pointed, he pulls the gun out and without hesitation fires. Well, actually, fires a blank first, but the next shot lets the bullet out. People standing around, watching the dying man completely unfazed are… well, so Brazilian it doesn’t even surprise me. Today it was him who got shot, tomorrow somebody else. Brazil will be Brazil.
