Danny died in hospital on Tuesday 18th October after being shot the previous day.

The trans woman who was shot on Monday night (17) on Avenida João Durval Carneiro, near the bus station of Senhor do Bonfim died this Tuesday morning (18) at Hospital Dom Antonio Monteiro (HDAM).

[Deadname] Maciel dos Santos Silva , 20, who used the social name of Danny Santos, was shot twice, at around 7pm on Monday. She, even injured, managed to get to a hotel on Avenida João Durval, where she asked for help. The victim was attended by Samu, who took her to the UPA 24h, being later transferred to HDAM, where she died this Tuesday.

Danny's friend Audrey - who tried to help her after she was shot - was herself shot at Danny's wake later the same day. No information was given about her state of health.

The municipality of Senhor do Bonfim in the North of the State of Bahia has been experiencing moments of great violence, and one of the most recent cases took place on Tuesday night, 18, at Rua Miguel Pinheiro, Bairro Alto da Rainha, where a woman named Audrey was shot in the head by two individuals as she attended the wake of [deadname] Maciel dos Santos Silva, 20, who was trans and used the social name Daniella (Danny).

The report does not describe Audrey's state of health, but it reported that she appears in the video helping Danny, after being shot on the night of Monday 17, on Avenida João Durval Carneiro, Bairro Pebinhas.

The two assailants allegedly involved in Daniella's murder were later apprehended by the authorities.
