THIS is the shocking moment a “Brit-born” gunman opens fire in a bar on his pool rival at point blank range.
The incident took place at Molly’s bar, in Miraflores, a city in the Lima province in Peru with the suspected shooter named locally as Benito Graffagnino.
It’s understood he thought his pool opponent was trying to hustle him.
In the footage, the two men can be seen arguing in the middle of a game as a woman also stands over the table.
The shooter then hands her the pool cue and turns around while he takes out a gun before firing several shots in quick succession and reportedly says “you’re a phony” just before 8pm on November 1.
The startled woman covers her ears and runs to another woman sat on a bar stool in a corner of the room.
