A teenager, just 16 years old, was apprehended after being thrown through the streets of Maracaju, 159 kilometers from the capital, on Wednesday night (22). Under the influence of drugs, the boy threatened to kill residents and even shot police officers. He was found by the military on Rua Joaquim Ferreira de Azambuja.
After he shot at the car, one of the police officers also fired four shots at the boy, who hid behind a pole. Faced with the police’s retaliation, the boy turned himself in and also a 357 caliber gun he was carrying. Even before being taken to the police station, residents who had been threatened showed up at the scene and had to file a report.
While freaking out in the middle of the street, the teenager stopped a vehicle pointing the gun at the driver and saying that he would kill him “if he didn’t get away from him in 5 seconds”. Another witness, reported that he was with his son in a cafeteria, when the teenager arrived, pointed the gun at the boy and also said he would “kill them both”. Finally, the teenager was sent to the Civil Police where he was charged with illegal possession of a weapon, shooting a firearm and attempted murder.
