Brazilian cartoonist Glauco Villas Boas shot in assault

Brazilian cartoonist Glauco Villas Boas and his adult son, Raoni, were gun down by two assailants who entered his home demanding money.

To keep his family from being harmed, Glauco negotiated with the assailants and agreed to go with them to withdraw money from the bank if they would leave the place and free his wife and children, Handro said.

At the moment Glauco was leaving the house with the assailants, Raoni arrived, and when he saw that a robbery was in progress he sought to dissuade the criminals.

The two assailants then shot Raoni and Glauco, who tried to defend his son, and then ran off in a vehicle they had stolen hours before.
