It’s not a good week for Brazil.
First, a soccer referee and player were both murdered in a sordid story, and now a video has surfaced of rapper MC Daleste being shot and killed while performing at a public housing building on Saturday night in the neighbourhood of San Martin.
The 20-year-old, whose birth name was Daniel Pellegrine, was mid-song when a bullet struck him, causing the musician to slump to the ground.
Pellegrine was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital, where he later died.
No information has been released on potential suspects or whether any arrests have been made, but one unnamed friend posted a statement on Facebook calling Pellegrine a “victim of intolerance.”
One audience member caught the entire incident on tape and the video has since received nearly 4 million hits. The bullet hits around 1:05. Watch at your own risk.
