Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace Leandro Lo has died.

Lo was shot and killed carrying out a scuffle at a concert in Sao Paulo, Brazil. In the authorities report, officer Henrique Otvio Oliveira Velozo was listed as a suspect.

The authorities report (via Combate) notes that Velozo took a bottle from Los table, which started the incident. Lo then took Velozo down and held him there. After the two were separated and Velozo returned to his feet, he pulled out a gun and shot Lo in the top.

Lo was rushed to Dr. Arthur Ribeiro de Saboya hospital and was declared brain dead hours later.
