Also according to the PM, three criminals participated in the robbery. After the police arrived, two suspects surrendered, but the third, aged 24, left the store with a woman who had been taken hostage. After leaving the establishment, he walked with the victim at gunpoint for two blocks (about 200 m), being accompanied by the military, who had surrounded the area.
When the criminal arrived at Rua Coronel Carvalho with his wife, a civilian policeman in plain clothes managed to shoot the robber and free the hostage. The agent, who was passing by the scene, took advantage of the man’s moment of distraction to make the shot. According to the PM, the shot was taken to the Japuiba Hospital, but he did not resist and died. A 9mm caliber pistol was seized with him.
According to the agent told the TV team, he would have fired three shots and at least one shot in the boy’s head. The expertise was on the spot to gather more details. The victim was not physically injured. She was at gunpoint for at least 15 minutes before she was released.
“There were threats all the time. He attacked a salesman and made psychological pressure, just saying he was going to kill me, asking if I had a father, mother, children… He said I had nothing to lose, and neither did they . [They] cursed, made bad jokes with the girls at the store… It was horrible,” an employee of the store, who chose not to identify herself, told the story.
The two prisoners were taken to the Angra police station. A fourth suspect, who was waiting for the other three in a car, managed to escape and is still being sought.
