SAO PAULO—A customer at a Brazilian brothel went into a jealous rage and killed six people when he was told the prostitute he wanted was with another man, authorities said Friday.

When the man learned the woman he wanted was unavailable, he returned to his car for a revolver, opened fire and killed the prostitute, her client and four other people, the state security secretariat told Agence France-Presse.

It caused panic at the brothel, where screaming prostitutes and clients ran from the house and hid in sugarcane fields nearby.
