An intense gunfight again scared the residents of Morro do Fubá, in Campinho, West Zone of Rio, in the late morning of this Wednesday (21). Children were sheltered inside a room at the Pastoral do Menor to escape the confrontation.

Images taken by residents show that dozens of shots hit the wall of a house. A video shows cars trying to leave the clash site. There were no reports of injuries on Wednesday.

In a note, the State Department of Education reported that the state network unit works only at night. School boards have the autonomy to “take the necessary measures” to “guarantee the physical integrity” of students, teachers and staff.

Since the afternoon of this Tuesday (20), a confrontation between drug traffickers and militiamen causes an exchange of fire in the region.

Videos and audios sent by residents Tuesday showed the intense exchange of fire. One person was injured and was admitted to the local UPA.

Agents of the 9th BPM (Rocha Miranda) were transferred to Morro do Fubá. Residents said that BOPE police arrived at the scene at around 5 pm, and the shooting stopped for a while.

The PM stated that policing in the region was reinforced and agents were “cautiously” surrounding the region earlier this evening, due to the high flow of people and vehicles.

In the early hours of Monday (19), another confrontation in the place would have made criminals invade the old Court of Justice. The 32nd Subsection of the OAB-RJ (Madureira/Jacarepaguá) operates on the same land.

The Souza Marques College, near Morro do Fubá, had already suspended classes on Monday. After another shooting, the college suspended classes and administrative activities on Tuesday and Wednesday (21) in Cascadura.
