A police chase ended with three robbery suspects killed during the early hours of this Tuesday (2), in Contagem, in the metropolitan region of Belo Horizonte.

The first information indicates that the men had stolen a Siena model vehicle in Belo Horizonte in a location that has not yet been disclosed. However, the car had an “engine kill” system, and after the robbery the suspects had to abandon the vehicle, which stopped working.

The same suspects then stole a second Pálio model vehicle. With him, the men allegedly committed two cell phone robberies. First, from a pedestrian. Then, two employees of a pharmacy, in the Glória and Dom Bosco neighborhoods, also in BH.

Soldiers from the ROTAM Battalion managed to track down one of the suspects, who was wearing an electronic ankle bracelet. He was found in the Pálio vehicle, with two accomplices, near Shopping Contagem.

Upon being located, the suspects began to escape, breaking through two police roadblocks. They passed Via Expressa de Contagem and continued to Avenida João César de Oliveira. According to the police, it was possible to see that the men were armed.

Disobeying orders to stop, the military shot the suspects. They were taken to the Contagem Municipal Hospital, but arrived at the scene dead. Their names and ages have not yet been released.

Inside the Pálio model vehicle, police found a pistol, a revolver and a replica firearm, as well as ammunition. The incident remains ongoing, monitored by the Military Police Internal Affairs.
