A fight between brothers leads to one of the brothers to murder. On the afternoon of Friday, August 12, 2016, around 3:30 p.m. an argument between two brothers led to one of the brothers shooting & killing the other. From inside their home appliance store business in which the victim ran, police found 38-year-old, Dirceu Ribeiro Couto, laying on the ground of the store dead from several gunshot wounds.
The victim & his brother had some sort of falling out over the business which led to the other brother opening up a similar store only 50+ yards away from the original. That only fueled the problem & increased the discord between them. That afternoon it all came to a head when the topic was brought up again, leading to another argument & one of the brothers retrieving a gun and chasing the other. The victim fled to the other store where he was followed and executed with shots to the back of the head. The killer escaped capture & is still on loose according to police.
