Gang Violence At Brazil’s Gay Pride Parade Leaves One Teenager Dead, 17 Detained.

In what eerily seems reminiscent.of what happened this year at San Francisco Pride, one teenager  is dead after a gang battle at a Pride Parade in Brazil over the weekend. 

Police say the teenager was shot when the gangs got into a confrontation late Saturday as they headed to the parade attended by nearly 70,000 people in Juiz de Fora.   Police detained 17 youngsters, including a man suspected of firing the shots that killed the teenager. Their ages were not immediately released.
