Kauany was shot in the street.

A young woman identified as Kauany Bacelar was found dead in the neighborhood of Pau da Lima, in Salvador, early this Wednesday (28/12). Residents of the region found the body of the young woman in one of the streets of the neighborhood.

According to the military police, the body of the victim, who was trans, was found on Rua da Esperan├ža. In her head, agents noticed several gunshot wounds. There is still no official confirmation that it is transphobia, that is, a crime because of the gender adopted by Kauany. On social media, several family members and friends mourned the young woman's death. One of them commented on the victim's profile that she would have gone out to enjoy the night with some friends. According to the Civil Police, the case is being investigated by the 2nd Homicide Police Station (DH).,corpo-de-mulher-trans-com-marcas-de-tiros-e-encontrado-no-bairro-de-sao-marcos-em-salvador
