Tuesday’s incident happened at his residence in the district of Outeiro, in Belém. Pereira was murdered in front of his wife and son.

“According to the Civil Police, the fighter was in his house when, around 11:30 p.m., knocked at the back door. When he opened, Adriano Mamut came across three men, all wearing shirts on their faces and armed.

“Mamute ran to the room, where his companion and his 9-year-old son were, but he was pursued by the criminals, who, arriving in the room, went towards Hadrian. The victim would have asked for calm, but was shot with his face. He fell to the ground still alive.
