Understand the case

The investigation refers to the crime of double homicide committed on 11/23/23 at Shopping Popular in Cuiabá (MT). The executioner shot the first victim in the back of the head, but the firearm projectile transfixed and hit a second victim, with the two victims, Gersino Rosa dos Santos, aged 43, and Cleyton de Oliveira De Souza Paulino, aged 27, being to death. The event generated immense repercussion as it was carried out in one of the busiest places in the Capital of Mato Grosso.

The executor was identified, located and arrested in the municipality of Uberlândia (MG). This individual reported that he was hired by VBS to kill the first victim, receiving the amount of R$10 thousand, to commit the crime. The motivation for the crime, according to what was determined, was to avenge the death of VBS’ brother

Therefore, VBS was identified as the mastermind behind the crime of double homicide, which is why the police authority of the Mato Grosso Civil Police Homicide Division represented his arrest. During the investigations, it was found that VBS and his mother JBS, who also participated in the dynamics of the crime, could be hiding in the municipality of Campo Grande.

As a result, today (02), GARRAS, together with DH/PCMT and GOE/PCMT, carried out several surveys, managing to locate and capture VBS and JBS. The two were taken to GARRAS, where the procedures will be carried out determined by the Constitution and the law, both in relation to the execution of arrest warrants and in relation to the arrest in the act for the crime of illegal possession of a firearm.

Firearms will be seized and inspected, including for ballistic confrontation.
