The Police in Brazil are looking for two gunmen, Edgar Ricardo de Oliveira, and Ezequias Souza Ribeiro – who are on the run after killing seven people over being mocked for losing a pool game.
According to New York Post, the gunmen opened fire in a Brazilian pool hall, killing seven people, including a 12-year-old girl.
The Post said that Oliveira had lost a pool game, and 4,000 reais, against one of the men who he later shot dead before he returned with Ezequias and challenged the man for a second time. This time too, he lost
The men lost two consecutive games in Sinop City, in the state of Mato Grosso, on Tuesday, 21 February and when the crowd laughed at their misfortune, they lost it, Newsflash reported.
The chilling footage shows one of the men lining up the victims against the wall at gunpoint while his companion grabs a shotgun from a pickup truck.
In a few seconds, the man with the pump-action shotgun begins his terrifying assault, shooting a man in a white T-shirt at point-blank range.
He continues his barrage, picking his targets one by one as the other man joins in with his handgun.
As people crumple to the floor, others scramble for their lives and run out into the street. One woman is seen holding up her arms as the gunmen leave the scene of the massacre.
On their way out, the killers grab small amounts of cash on pool tables, as well as a woman’s purse.
Six people died instantly.
They were identified as Larissa Frasao de Almeida, 12, Orisberto Pereira Sousa, 38, Adriano Balbinote, 46, Getulio Rodrigues Frasao Junior, 36, Josue Ramos Tenorio, 48, and Maciel Bruno de Andrade Costa, 35.
A seventh, Elizeu Santos da Silva, 47, was pronounced dead later.
