- The incident took place at Molly’s Irish Bar in Miraflores, a city in Lima province
This is the shocking moment a British man repeatedly shoots and injures a rival pool player after accusing him of scamming him during a game in a Peruvian bar.
The incident took place at Molly’s Irish Bar in Miraflores, a city in the Lima province, just after Halloween.
The pair can be seen arguing mid-way through an even game as a couple of women at the other side of the bar chat to one another.
The man, named as Benito Graffagnino, starts chatting more aggressively to the rival and one of the girls moves over.
Both men are gesturing and Graffagnino speaks to the woman before drawing out a small gun and blasting his opponent several times after apparently calling him a ‘phony’, as the girls cover their ears and run away.
