According to military police officers from the 27th Companhia Interativa Comunitária (Cicom), the two men entered the UPA at around 1 pm. They pretended to seek medical attention at the reception of the health unit, before the crime.
“They sat down, waited and went to the service. I needed documentation, but they didn’t show it. They called the social worker and she called the guard. When the watchman arrived, they shot him, ”he said.
According to the police, the pair tried to steal the gun the guard used. They got into a hand-to-hand fight and then shot the guard with a shot in the face.
The pair moved away the moment the watchman fired at them. They even shot him a few times and fled the UPA on foot.

The officers of the 27th Cicom also informed that the guard was rescued to the Hospital and Pronto Socorro Platão Araújo, and is not at risk of death. Searches for the suspects were initiated by the Ostensive Round Cândido Mariano (Rocam), but they had not been found until Monday afternoon (5).
The suspects’ actions were recorded by UPA security cameras. After the incident, marks of the shots fired by the men were seen on the wall and door of the health unit. The case was registered with the 27th Integrated District of Police (DIP), which is expected to investigate the case.
