Scot Shot Dead In Brazil Bar Raid
A British man has died after being shot in a bar in Brazil, according to reports.
The man, named by local media as Jason Richard Stevens, 39, a Scottish translator, was killed in Sao Paulo on Wednesday.
Local media reported that one suspect was robbing customers while another guarded the door.
Mr Stevens attempted to speak to one of the two robbers, who then shot him.
The two assailants are then believed to have fled the scene in a getaway vehicle driven by a third man.
Mr Stevens was taken to hospital but died of his injuries. No-one has been arrested over the incident.
A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesman said: "We can confirm the death of a British national on 22 October in Brazil.
"We are offering consular assistance to the family at this difficult time.''
Mr Stevens was a former pupil of St Paul's School in Sao Paulo, where his mother is a teacher.
Headteacher Louise Simpson said: "Our most sincere condolences are with her and her family at the time of this tragic event.
"The school community has been informed and has offered support and sympathy to the family.''
