Gunfire at Tom Brady's wedding

Armed security guards opened fire on paparazzi at Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen's nuptials in Costa Rica, blasting out windows of one picture shooter's car, according to published reports today.

Bullets nearly missed the heads of fleeing photographers, prompting at least one local shutter bug to file a complaint with police, according to Splash news agency.

Several photographers had just taken pictures of the New England Patriots quarterback and Brazilian stunner on Saturday when they were confronted by the super couple's armed goons, the news agency said.

When the photographers ran away, bullets started flying, Splash said.

The couple was married in Los Angeles in February but exchanged vows again at the model's home in Santa Teresa yesterday.

Rolando Aviles, one of the targeted photographers, said rent-a-cops told him Gisele had an exclusive picture deal with a Brazilian magazine.

"They were very angry at us, threatening and screaming," Aviles said. "They said we couldn't use our pictures because they were selling the wedding pictures to a magazine."

The local shutterbug said he couldn't believe the confrontation led to gun fire.

"But we of course told them we cannot give them the pictures," he said. "We then left to go back to our cars and all of a sudden someone just shoots at us."

"I still can't believe it," Aviles added. "It just missed our heads. All this over some pictures. It's crazy."
