The horrifying moment a jeweller is shot dead while trying to fight off an armed robber was captured on CCTV.
Nuno Antonio Torres, 39, from Portugal, relocated to the north-eastern Brazilian city of Fortaleza five years ago and opened a small watch shop with his brother.
Earlier this month, a client contacted Mr Torres through social media to set up a buyer meeting.

But, it seems the client had no intention of actually paying for his watch and, when he arrived with a female companion, he pulled out a gun.
The footage, taken inside the shop by CCTV cameras, shows Mr Torres giving his attacker a watch.
The man looks for something in his back pocket and suddenly takes out a gun, which he points straight at the victim.
But the Portuguese man fights back and grabs the pistol.
As he tries to push the gun away, the robber manages to free himself and shoots Mr Torres twice.
