The man who earlier today hijacked a bus in Brazil was shot by a police sniper, according to a live feed by Globo. The hijacker was apparently killed, although there has been no confirmation of this information.
In a tweet posted by a user named Diniz, a man in a mask wearing a white t-shirt was seen leaving the vehicle. The man then threw a jacket towards the police and proceeded to go back inside the bus. The man is later seen falling on the ground, apparently shot.
Instante em que o sequestrador foi atingido, aparentemente na perna, parabéns à polícia pic.twitter.com/tSQuUSHzWW— Diniz 🇧🇷 🇮🇱 🇺🇸 (@dinizsioux) August 20, 2019
Another tweet shows a blurred image of the same man lying on the ground with a police officer beside him.
