According to eyewitnesses, after the refusal to pay, confusion arose between the people involved and the others who intervened.

The man returned a few minutes later with two brothers who started shooting at people in front of the church. Four men aged 21, 22, 25 and 32 were shot and the 25-year-old died. The suspect in the group shooting was also shot in the abdomen.

In the early hours of Saturday, four masked men drove to the pastor’s home, police said, and killed him with more than 10 shots.

The municipal police reported that the people of the assembly rioted against the suspects of the priest’s murder and set fire to the house of one of them.

The case is under investigation.
