Police officers are mourning the loss of a beloved friend and colleague who was killed by another officer.

The police officer of Brazil, was killed after he pulled out his gun while playing a prank on his colleague, who was his good friend.

Sao Paulo Police confirmed that the officer was playing a joke on his colleague, faking a hold up in which he was shot dead.

According to a police spokesperson, one officer was pulling out of the garage to go to work when his colleague arrived on a motorcycle and announced a holdup all the while his face was covered with his helmet.

The frightened officer in the car defended himself from what he perceived as a danger. He pulled out his gun and fired several shots into his colleague’s stomach.

When he felt that the imminent danger was over, the officer then went to help the victim. That’s when he realized who the man was.

He rushed his colleague to a hospital. Sadly, doctors were unable to save his life and he later died from the gunshot wounds.
