Victoria was shot by two assilants who broke into her house in what appears to be a targetted execution.

A 25-year-old [trans woman] who used the social name of Vitória was shot dead inside her own house on Thursday (5) in Juína (737 km from Cuiabá).

According to the Civil Police, two gunmen broke into her house, shot the victim and fled. The crime happened in the Duilio neighborhood. There is no information on the motivation of the murder.

A witness told police that two men entered the house and broke down the back door. The witness lives in the house and was lying on the living room couch. The men threatened her and ordered her to return to her room. Then Victoria was killed inside the residence. The victim was shot dead in the chest and arm. The witness could not identify the suspects.

Vitória was rescued by the Mobile Emergency Care Service (Samu) to the Point Care Unit (UPA), but died on the way to hospital.
