The number of people shot dead at a church in the Brazilian city of Campinas this week has risen to five, officials said Wednesday.
Heleno Severo Alves, 84, died after being treated at a hospital for gunshot wounds, the mayor’s office said.
The shooting happened Tuesday afternoon at Metropolitan Cathedral.
The gunman opened fire, gunning down a number of people before fatally shooting himself, CNN affiliate Record TV reported.
The gunman was 49-year-old Euler Fernando Grandolpho, a resident of the neighboring city of Valinhos, according to Agencia Brasil. The motive is unknown.
Grandolpho had no previous criminal record and worked at São Paulo state’s District Attorney’s Office as an assistant until 2014, Agencia Brasil reported.
So far, the evidence doesn’t indicate that Grandolpho knew the victims, Agencia Brasil said, citing Jose Henrique Ventura, a police officer investigating the shooting.
