‘My father only heard the shot’, says son of elderly man killed in robbery in Rio


The son of the elderly Edson Theodorio da Silva, aged 71, killed during a robbery in Coelho Neto, in the North Zone of Rio, stated that the bandits killed his father without announcing that it was a robbery.

“My father was going to buy a gift for his grandson. The family decided to go together. When they returned to the house, they were approached by four motorcycles, two in front and two behind. They only heard the shot. The shot went through my father’s heart”, said Thiago Theodorio.
