A pensioner accused of a sex assault on a six-year-old girl has been shot dead in a suspected mob justice attack after police decided not to press charges against him.
The 62-year-old man, who has not been named, was gunned down in broad daylight in Porto Alegre in Brazil.
It was claimed the man had inappropriately touched a young girl while at a supermarket.
It is alleged that CCTV caught him touching the girl while her mother was distracted.
The man reportedly took the girl behind some boxes and sexually assaulted her in the shop.
