19-year-old boy murdered in Vilamoura nightclub

boy shotThe 19-year-old staff member, who was shot at the door of a nightclub in the Algarve didn’t survive his injuries and died after being taken to Faro Hospital.

The victim, Lucas Leote, who was working as a member of staff at Lick nightclub in Vilamoura (Loulé municipality), was shot in the head last night outside the nightclub.

Fernando Pacheco, manager of Lick, released a statement discussing the events that "culminated in the death of a staff member".

"Lick is currently providing support to the family and has already provided full support to the appropriate authorities to bring the perpetrator of these actions to justice as soon as possible.", said the manager.

Fernando Pacheco told the press that the young man was working at the door of the nightclub, giving bracelets to guests to provide them with access to the space.

In the statement, the manager stressed that "it is time to end the violence in nightlife spaces, in particular, against employees who are only performing duties and, in this case, resulted in the death of a 19-year-old boy."

"Lick will continue its active contribution so that users of nightlife spaces, as well as employees can enjoy and feel safe in these spaces without being exposed to acts of violence from citizens who do not respect the most basic principles of social coexistence and respect for human life", he expressed.

"The alleged perpetrator of the murder fled via motorcycle which has since been recovered by the authorities. However, he has not yet been found," a source at GNR General Command said this morning.

Earlier today, a source from the Faro District Relief Operations Command (CDOS) had indicated that a "firearm assault" warning was given at 3:49am.

On site were 14 emergency service personnel, made up of six vehicles from both the National Institute of Medical Emergencies (INEM) and the GNR.

The investigation of the case is being overseen by the Judicial Police.

Excellent Ed.
Hopefully this may stop the abusers in their tracks although it is difficult to prevent individuals using multiple names if they have multiple email addresses. It is usually fairly obvious though to me & others from the writing style. You can but try to clean up the readers comments section. Good luck

Having been in Portugal since before the missing infant McCann my husband and I still have not got our heads round the Portuguese police blanket refusal to announce a search is on for missing people. Whether escaped criminals, disoriented elderly or missing infants. A current example is the Portuguese woman who at the time had gone missing in Barcelona, Spain. So - not being in Portugal - safe for the Portuguese news to tell us with photos of her. Fortunately she is found 3 days later and is now safe - but in Lisbon, Portugal. Having escaped from her Portuguese ex-boyfriend captor, immediately recognised by passers thanks to the national TV news . Had all this happened only in Portugal we are unlikely to have known anything about it!


Daphne. The Subject of this article is about the murder of a 19 year old man in Vilamoura, not the McCann’s, or, any other missing individuals. Which bit of that, and Ed’s house rules, do you not understand?

Regarding the disappearance of Maddie Mc Cann, the police searched for the child on that night and for day's after this, as did residents of this area, to no avail.
As for the women fleeing to Spain to get away from her jealous and violent husband, he was arrested in Portugal and this was widely covered by all of the TV news programmes in Portugal.
Strange, how some people like to continually and without rhyme or reason make negative comments about a country that is one of the most friendly in the world.


I totally agree and I can not understand why, if this country is so awful, why the complainants don't bugger off back to the Septic Isle that is Brexit Britain.

As with the Spanish coastline, without northern Europe interest showing these sites had a value to us; the Algarve coastline would still be nothing more than a few fishing villages dotted along it. Yet the Algarve nowadays swamped in holiday season with aspirational Portuguese staying in their apartments and villas. Illegally renting them out when not being used by friends and family.


Lucky for "north Europeans, Portugal provides a holiday destination for most people to enjoy,
even aspirational north ("english") europeans ...

too terrible seeing the many drunken young inebriated or drug effected patrons this was no surprise to the local residents. Its time the local authorities closed LICK as too many drunken guest for the police to handle Our sympathies are with the victims family
