Shocking CCTV footage has emerged of a scorned wife storming a bar and firing shots at a younger woman who was sitting with her husband and friends.
Dayane Rafaelle da Silva Rodrigues, 31, was arrested in the municipality of Tiangua in the Brazilian state of Ceara on Thursday, February 18.
Surveillance camera inside the deserted bar shows 26-year-old Djaiane Batista Barros, seen wearing a white tube top and shorts, chatting and having drinks with a group of six friends.
Rodrigues' husband, who wears a white cap and blue polo shirt, can be seen sitting opposite Djaiane and facing the entrance.
Moments later, the group starts fleeing when Rodrigues enters the bar holding a weapon.
She starts firing shots, with one striking Djaiane in the head and killing her instantly.
The shots also hit a 24-year-old man, who was taken to hospital where he is recovering from a wound to the arm after undergoing surgery.
CCTV outside the bar also captures the wife arriving on the back of a motorbike with another person.
She walks into the bar holding a white hand bag and after the shooting, she is caught in a scuffle with her husband who tried to remove the gun from her hand.
The police then arrested the alleged killer who was remanded in custody on the same day.
According to the officials, the suspect carried out the act because she was "angry" with her husband, who was at an establishment reportedly frequented by escorts.
The couple had previously argued about the husband going to such bars, they added.
Following the Rodrigues' arrest, she told officers that she fired the shots at random to "disperse" her husband's table and that she did not know the woman she killed.
According to investigators, the weapon was purchased in Ceara State capital Fortaleza, around five hours away by car.
However, they do not believe the crime was premeditated and suspect it was committed on impulse.
The suspect has no prior criminal record and is distressed by her actions, according to the police, who are investigating her for homicide and bodily injury.
