Victim and perpetrator were childhood friends and had children with the same woman, which undermined their friendship.
Rafael Freitas Silva, 29, was hit by six of the nine shots fired at him late this Monday morning (21). The crime took place on Rua Tamôio, in Jardim Leblon, in Campo Grande, shortly after the boy left the son of his ex’s house. The hypothesis is that the crime was passionately motivated, since suspect and victim had relationships with the same woman.
According to delegate Camilo Kettenhuber, from the 6th Police Station, both the author and the victim had children with the same woman. The first to relate to her was Rafael, the two had a child and ended up not being together. The author ended up being a shoulder to cry on to her and ended up getting involved with the young woman with whom he also had a child.
Because of this relationship, the two boys, who were childhood friends, ended up moving away and the two began to have disagreements and this Monday, Rafael went by app car to his ex’s house, which is on Rua Tupi, to leave the son and when he left he met the suspect, who also went to the woman’s house to take a lunch box.
The two were surprised and the perpetrator followed the victim to Rua Tamôio where he fired at least nine shots from a 9mm pistol. Rafael was hit four times in the chest and twice in the arm. The suspect was in a white Logan and then fled.
Still according to the delegate, the woman is currently in a relationship with a third boy who is not involved in the crime, but everything indicates that the execution was passionately motivated, since the two previously had a relationship with her.
Rafael has passages for trafficking and being run over and a week ago he would have left prison. He ended up dying before help even arrived. The author has not yet been named and is being sought by the police.
Teams from the PM (Military Police), Shock Battalion, Samu (Mobile Emergency Service), GOI (Operations and Investigations Group) from the Civil Police and Expertise were on site.
