Waldir Monteiro was returning home from class on a motorcycle-taxi when he was shot five times by a police officer.
The information systems student, who says he has no connection with the world of crime, was handcuffed and taken to a local hospital, where he was treated. Fortunately, he managed to survive.
The driver of the motorcycle-taxi, however, a 17-year-old Brazilian, was not so lucky, and died after being hit in the stomach with one of the bullets. According to an A Semana Online source, police are attempting to cover up the incident.
