Farmer shoots four who told joke

March 9, 2001

São Paulo, Brazil--A 56-year-old farmer, reportedly angered by a friendly joke about his sexuality, shot to death three of his friends and a cousin and then killed himself.

The shooting happened in Jundiai, 43 miles north of São Paulo.

Duilio Pessoto left his rural home by car March 1 armed with two revolvers. He shot his first victim on a nearby road as the man drove by and killed two more men at a bar, Globo television reported.

Pessoto then drove further down the road, pulled the car over and shot his fourth victim and himself on the street.

Locals said that Pessoto was angry because somebody had made a joke suggesting that he was gay. Pessoto was single and apparently lived alone.
