Remis was killed allegedly by the Public Works' municipal-secretary Jorge Marra, while the politician was denouncing irregularities in a public work's construction.

According to local media, Marra interrupted Remis' broadcast as he took the cell phone away from the politician.

"Here is the secretary. He came here to attack me. Don't take my phone," Remis shouted during the live recording.

Minutes later, Remis went to the Mayor's office to claim his phone when he was shot five times in the head. He died in the place.

Marra is in unknown whereabouts. Authorities are waiting for the alleged assassin to show up and defend himself before the Justice.

"We regret everything that happened. That sequence of acts is unjustified," The Mayor's Office stated.

Minas Gerais' Police Department is investigating the murder of the young man, who was about to present his candidacy as a Patrocinio's councilman.

The Mayor's Office decreed three days of mourning in the city as it informed that Marra will be removed from office.
