Jiu-jitsu fighter Leandro Lo reportedly died early Sunday morning at 33 after he was shot in the head during a concert in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Witnesses said the situation started when the police officer grabbed a bottle from Lo's table. The fighter then responded by taking him down and holding him, but witnesses said Velozo shot Lo in the head after the two were separated.
Lo was taken to the hospital but was declared brain dead within a matter of hours.
His death led to plenty of reaction:
