At the time of the confusion, Henrique was at the club with friends, including midfielder Nathan, also a Goiás player and who was not injured. An unidentified woman was also shot, but is doing well.
Born in Brasília, Henrique started his career at Flamengo, but has been a Goiás athlete since 2019. He debuted as a professional in the 2020 Brasileirão and continued in the main team this season.
In all, he played nine matches in 2021, but had no more opportunities after the Goiás Championship. His last official game was against Atlético-GO, on May 2nd, by the State.
Goiás faces CRB this Saturday, at 9 pm, in Maceió, for the 23rd round of Série B. Henrique Lordelo was not related to the game and, according to the club, was off on Friday night.
