A teenager has been shot dead in a fight between rival gangs at a gay parade in south-eastern Brazil.

Authorities told local media another teenager was shot in the leg, but the injury was not life threatening.

Globo's G1 website said police detained 17 youngsters, including a man suspected of firing the shots that killed the teenager.
