Brazilian police recommended Friday that prosecutors charge six people over the killing of a Black man, Joao Alberto Silveira Freitas, beaten by security guards at a supermarket, a case that shocked the country and triggered protests.

There is sufficient evidence to charge four people who witnessed the killing without intervening, in addition to the two white guards accused of beating Joao Alberto Silveira Freitas to death on November 19, police said in their investigation report.

The others include the arrested supervisor of the Carrefour supermarket in the southern city of Porto Alegre, where the killing occurred.
