Mr Negreiros was busy shooting enemies – and wearing headphones – as he live streamed on his YouTube channel, so he did not notice the two gunman enter.

A nearby property was also targeted by the two men. A female resident, who wished to remain anonymous, told local media how they entered the house and demanded money.
In addition to the woman, a couple and four children were in the property at the time of the break-in.
She told G1: ‘They wanted money. They said they didn’t want the television, they didn’t want anything.
