Victim Alisson Cerqueira Nascimento was reportedly confronted by six members of the criminal faction BDM (Bonde do Maluco), on Church street, in the municipality of Saubara, in Brazil, at around 12:25am on 3rd January.

The young kiosk worker, who was said to be 18 years old in some local media and 20 in other outlets, was approached by the armed group over his Mickey Mouse shirt, allegedly a symbol used by another rival gang.

According to reports, they demanded he remove the piece of clothing, but he refused.

He stated that the shirt was a gift from his grandmother. And despite offers of another blouse from those nearby, Alisson insisted he would not remove it.

Major Marcos Davi from the Military Police stated that the six men decided to kill the young man after his refusal.

Davi said: “Six individuals arrived, told him to take off this mouse shirt, which is Mickey.

The case is under investigation by the Civil Police, and as of now, no suspects have been arrested.
