Sao Paulo :

A customer at a Brazilian brothel went into a jealous rage and killed six people when he was told the sex-worker he wanted was with another man, authorities said.

When the man learned the woman he wanted was unavailable, he returned to his car for a revolver, opened fire and killed her, her client and four other people, the state security secretariat told a global news agency.

The shooting happened on Wednesday night at a roadside brothel in Jaboticabal, a city of 70,000 people in the state of Sao Paulo.

It caused panic at the brothel, where screaming sex-workers and clients ran from the house and hid in sugarcane fields nearby.

The 27-year-old shooter managed to escape on foot, but turned himself in to police on Thursday.

Brazilian media reports identified the man as a barber with no criminal record.
