A call to respond to a case of domestic violence resulted in the death of a 24-year-old man during a confrontation with the police. According to the Military Police (PM), he resisted arrest and even injured a police officer with a machete blow before being shot. The case took place in Divinópolis do Tocantins, on Wednesday afternoon (31).

Initially, the police received a call to intervene in a couple’s fight. The suspect’s 37-year-old wife said that her partner was drunk and quite violent. She said she was physically attacked, thrown to the ground and attempted to be strangled, at which point she managed to free herself, run away and call for help.

When police arrived, the woman was being taken to the hospital by ambulance. The team saw the suspect entering a residence. The police climbed the wall and the man locked himself in the house.

The man opened the door a little and the negotiation for him to surrender lasted approximately 20 minutes. Until, instead of surrendering, the suspect took a machete and hit one of the soldiers in the right wrist. The officer suffered a minor injury and is OK.

According to the police, in the face of the attack, it was necessary to use a firearm to neutralize the suspect’s actions. SAMU was then called and confirmed the death at the scene. The police discovered that the man had police records for the crimes of bodily harm and threat.
