Four Killed in Brazil’s Cathedral Shooting

Thursday 27 December 2018
Four Killed in Brazil’s Cathedral Shooting

Alwaght- A gunman opened fire on Tuesday inside the Catholic cathedral in the Brazilian city of Campinas and killed four people, and injured four others before killing himself.

An eyewitness recounted seeing the assailant shoot a couple at point-blank range. "He shot the man and he shot the woman. After this second shot my reaction was that of running away, I ran for my life. Since I was near the exit of the church, I went out running and understood that several people were also running in front of me", church goer Pedro Rodrigues said.

The attack took place at the end of the midday service, when the gunman started shooting at worshipers before he was shot in the ribs by police and then shot himself in the head. The motive behind the shooting is yet unclear.

Police identified the shooter as Euler Fernando Gandolfo, 49, a systems analyst with no criminal record.

Brazil had nearly 64,000 murders last year - more than any other country, according to the United Nations. However, random mass shootings are relatively rare, with few American-style shootings in schools or other public areas.
