A 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of killing two young people, aged 18 and 20, in Contagem, in the Metropolitan Region of Belo Horizonte. According to the Civil Police, he is a member of a criminal faction in Rio de Janeiro and has been on the run since October 2023.

The double homicide occurred in July last year, in the Estâncias Imperiais neighborhood. According to delegate Ítalo Fernandes de Almeida, the suspect committed the crimes because he did not feel welcome at a birthday party.

“He said the following: ‘Aren’t you going to be nice to me?’ shots. It was a crime without motive,” said the police officer.

“He is a highly dangerous individual. He is very important in crime in Rio de Janeiro, and here in Minas Gerais he is also very influential, having committed several crimes. […] He is also involved in drug trafficking and supplies weapons to criminal factions in Contagem”, said the delegate.

The suspect was arrested in Contagem, where he traveled to spend the Easter holiday. A bar of cocaine and a 9 mm pistol were seized from him..
