Rodrigues had arrived on the back of a motorbike with another person and was seen walking into the bar carrying a cream handbag.
The shots also hit a 24-year-old man, who was taken to hospital where he is recovering from a wound to the arm after undergoing surgery.
After the shooting, security footage shows the husband wrestling with Rodrigues outside, trying to remove the silver gun from her grasp.
It is not clear what happened to the gun, but Rodrigues is seen walking away from the scene with her handbag. She was arrested by police shortly afterwards.
Police said the suspect carried out the shooting because she was ‘angry’ with her husband, who was at an establishment reportedly frequented by escorts.
The couple had previously argued about the husband going to such bars, the police added. Following her arrest, Rodrigues told officers that she fired the shots at random to ‘disperse’ her husband’s table and that she did not know victim.
So far investigators are claiming the killing was a spontanous reaction.
The murder weapon they say was purchased in Fortaleza, the capital city of the state of Ceara, about five hours away by road. However, they believe the murder was as not premeditated and suspect it was committed on impulse. There is no mention of the time of purchase of the weapon.
Rodrigues is held in custody for homicide. She has no prior criminal record and is distressed by her actions, police said.
