A man began shooting at a wedding right just before the Brazilian bride was set to say “I do.”

In the footage, an unidentified Brazilian bride makes her way down the aisle at a church in Brazil as a man in a striped shirt and jeans walks in behind her.

As the bride-to-be reaches to the front of the church, the man walks into one of the pews and whispers something to a guest. The man then lifts up his shirt, whips out a gun, and opens fire.

As guests try to run for cover, the shooter is observed calmly walking out the church.

After the chaos, the bride and groom resumed the wedding and got married.

According to the Daily Mail, the shooter, who has been identified as Umberto Ferreira dos Santos (also known by the nickname Betinho), shot three victims at the wedding: Cicero Barbosa da Silva, 62, his son Edmilson Bezerra da Silva, 37, and his wife.

Brazilian law enforcement officials believe that dos Santos went into the wedding to seek revenge for the killing of his son. It’s alleged that Edmilson was a primary suspect in his son’s murder.

Cicero and Edmilson underwent surgery at a hospital and are listed in stable condition. The wife, whose identity has not been revealed, was treated and discharged.

Authorities are still searching for the shooting suspect.
