Cousins dig own grave at gunpoint before shot in Brazil

This is the chilling moment a teenager and his cousin are forced to dig their own grave before being executed by a drugs gang in Brazil.

Wagner da Rosa, 17 and his 22-year-old cousin Victor were captured by a rival gang and taken to a woodland area near Porto Alegre.

The pair were then ordered to dig their own grave while being held at gunpoint by at least four men, who filmed the execution on their phones. 

 

Police believe the pair were killed after a factional row between drugs gangs turned increasingly violent

Horrific: Wagner and Victor da Rosa, both members of a local gang, were captured by rivals in Porto Alegre, Brazil 

The cousins are alleged to have been members of a rival gang, but did not have any criminal convictions, police say.

One of them, believed to be Victor, can be seen smoking a cigarette while he calmly subjects himself to his fate, as a man stands next to the pit, holding a gun and a rifle.

The two young men are then shot repeatedly with rifles.

As their dead bodies like in the ground, they are doused with petrol and set alight.

Police are now investigating the horrifying murder in the the Gravatai district of the city.

Felipe Borba from the Brazilian Civil Police said they believe the pair were killed after a factional row between drugs gangs turned increasingly violent.

He said: ‘The cousins had no criminal convictions. From the video we watched, it would look like a fight between factions for the drug trade.

‘A young man who was near the scene of a crime with a firearm was arrested but denied involvement in the murder.

‘Police are still investigating the crime and have not released the names of the gunmen. But we believe they are from a gang known as Anti-Bullet.

‘The video would be an attempt to intimidate the local factions, instilling fear and intimidation into their enemies and showing that they do not feel sorry for anyone.’
