On Tuesday (13th April), a man identified as Ilheus Segundo, aged 28, became the second person involved to be killed in the confrontation that took place in Pindobacu, in the rural area of Ilheus (South of Brazil).
It all began when two police officers were called to investigate a robbery in a local house. The police waited for the suspects to arrive and set up a trap: when the vehicle approached, it was apprehended and the two men allegedly started to fire at the officers.
The officers returned fire and, in the midst of the chaos, Ilheus Segundo was hit and killed. The other suspect, identified as Cacá Roberto Minor, aged 23, was seriously injured and taken to the hospital, but is expected to survive. This incident brings the total number of people killed in Pindobacu to twenty-eight in the last six months.
This case is the latest in a series of violent incidents that have taken place in the region, where the police forces have been constantly targeted by criminals. Commissioner Isidório Carvalho has stated that the police are prepared to take decisive action in order to restore order and justice: “We are doing everything we can to maintain peace and protect the citizens”.
It is also worth mentioning that, yet again, the death of Ilheus Segundo has saddened the local community and raised civilian unrest. The mayor has asked for a moment of silence and a national day of mourning.
In conclusion, it is safe to say that Ilheus Segundo will be remembered for the wrong reasons, and that only a swift and effective response from the authorities can help end the violence that has plagued the region for far too long.
