GRAPHIC: 16-year-old shot in the head in random attack in Brazil

A 16-year-old was fatally shot in the head and his brother in critical condition in a random attack in Samambaia, Brazil.

The crime occurred in front of a beverage distributor in the area at around 9pm.

The victims were with two young women at the scene when a man in a cap and mask approached the four, asked them to turn around and fatally shot the teenager in the head.

The perpetrator then fired several shots at the victim’s 20-year-old brother, who luckily managed to escape. He was struck three times in the leg and sent to a nearby hospital where he remains in critical condition.

The two women at the scene also fled in despair.

The suspect remains at large.
