Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Leandro Lo Death
Leandro Lo was shot in the head early on Sunday morning in Sao Paulo
and was subsequently declared brain dead, according to his attorney.
The age of Lo was 33. Henrique Otavio Oliveira Velozo, a police officer, is
reportedly a suspect. The jiu-jitsu competitor reportedly took Velozo
down and held him after witnesses said Velozo swiped a bottle from Lo's
table. When they were separated, Velozo climbed to his feet again, pulled
out a rifle, and fired a shot at Lo's forehead. Lo was rushed to the Dr. Arthur
Ribeiro de Saboya hospital, but hours later, doctors declared him brain dead.
