The shootings of a young man of about 20 years old, at dawn this Tuesday, March 14, 2017 in Rua Oliveira Dias, São Francisco neighborhood in Manaus, Amazons, Brazil is being reported by the local press as another crime that may have direct connection with the bloody war that has been fought by drug traffickers who run the drug sales outlets in the Southern Zone of the city.
The murdered man was standing at the corner of the street, which is known for its illegal, but bustling drug trade, when he was surrounded by three unknown individuals who began to assault him. Eventually, one of them told him to kneel and shot him in the head.
Two more shots from a 380-caliber pistol struck the victim’s chest, who kept performing agonal breathing for a while before dying.
At 0:10, the video shows what I’m told is a bullet casing and three portions of skunk weed.
