Wedding ceremonies are generally a time of joy as two families join together as one, but a recent wedding in Brazil turned bloody after a hit man determined to settle a score used the ceremony as an opportunity to exact his revenge, all of which was caught on video.
According to Fox News, the horrifying incident took place in Limoeiro de Anadia in the eastern Brazilian state of Alagoas, and the man who pulled off the daring assassination attempt was reportedly still at large, though he was well-known in the small community.
The video showed the would-be assassin, identified as Umberto Ferreira dos Santos casually enter the church and walk nonchalantly down the aisle behind the bride and groom, no doubt assumed by most to be a late-arriving guest.
Once Santos, also known as Betinho, reached the front of the church, he clumsily drew a handgun from his waist and opened fire on three people sitting in one of the front pews. After gunning them down at point-blank range, he casually walked back out of the church and fled the scene as the rest of the wedding guests screamed in panic at the horror they just witnessed.
According to the U.K. Daily Mail, the hit man’s targets were a father and son suspected of being involved in the death of his own son.
The victims were identified as 62-year-old Cicero Barbosa da Silva, his 37-year-old son Edmilson Bezerra da Silva and the son’s wife, who was not named.
The father and son underwent surgery for their gunshot wounds and were listed in stable condition, while the wife was treated and released for a minor wound on her arm.
The U.K. Metro reported that guests were utterly shocked by what happened, with one telling a local media outlet: “We have no idea what is the motive of this attempted murder, nor why it was done precisely during the wedding, as the victims walked around the town freely and any time of the day or night.”
Amazingly, after a short break to regain composure and clean up some of the mess, the remainder of the wedding ceremony was concluded as if nothing out of the ordinary had happened.

This is insane, and yet quite remarkable at the same time that nobody died and nobody else was injured besides the family members who were targeted.
Hopefully this man is caught by local authorities and held to account for his actions, which could easily have resulted in a triple murder at a wedding.
