While cycling with friends, a 12-year-old boy had his foot injured by a gunshot, on Monday night (1st), in Nova Andradina (MS). The teenager was shot by a military police officer, who was patrolling the region where the group was.

In a statement, the corporation said that the soldier shot the teenager after noticing a “suspicious attitude.” The case is investigated by the Military Police itself. Read the PM’s note in full below.

As determined by g1, after being shot, the teenager was taken to the Nova Andradina Regional Hospital. The Guardianship Council was called, but did not need to monitor the service, as the victim’s family was at the scene.

According to information provided by the PM’s office, the police found the group of teenagers riding bicycles, and they “adopted a suspicious attitude after seeing the vehicle”. In retaliation for what the corporation calls a “suspicious attitude”, the police officers shot at the boys.

According to the PM himself, the teenager was “properly” taken to a medical unit for treatment and, later, to the Civil Police station.

An inquiry by the Military Police will investigate the case. “The investigation will serve to better assess the facts, circumstances and possible responsibilities”, details a note from the corporation. Read the position in full below:

“The PMMS informs that a police team found a group of teenagers riding bicycles, and that they adopted a suspicious attitude after seeing the vehicle. The team was successful in approaching two of them, and during the procedure, a bodily injury resulted of police intervention. The teenager was duly taken to a medical unit for treatment, and later, to the Civil Police station. Military Judiciary Police measures were taken, and a Military Police Inquiry will be launched to better assess the facts, circumstances and eventual responsibilities.”
