Former basketball player Paulo Henrique Rossito (39), known as “Paulão”, was executed this Friday afternoon (29), in Bairro Montanha, in Lajeado. “Paulão” arrived home, on Rua Nicolau Jungs, in Bairro Montanha, when a man in a white VW Gol shot him and fled towards ERS-130. The victim was shot at least 10 times and died at the scene, inside his Toyota Corolla.

Paulão was born in Assis-SP. He played for Bira de Lajeado and was champion of Rio Grande do Sul in 2013. He had a winning CV at the clubs he played for. He was retired from basketball and lived in Lajeado.

Later, a white VW Gol car, which may have been used by the author, was found on fire at around 6:15 pm, close to RSC-453.

People notified the Fire Department about the fire. Arriving at the location, on Estrada Geral, in Bairro Floresta, the garrison found that it was an unidentified Goal.

In contact with the Military Brigade, the brigade members reported that the car had possibly been used by the person responsible for the murder of former player “Paulão”, moments before being burned and abandoned. The case is under investigation by the Civil Police.
