The officers from Brazil’s national security force were using a GPS device to navigate unfamiliar streets when they took a wrong turn off a highway leading to Rio’s international airport and ended up in a slum known for it’s violence. Their truck was sprayed with bullets, and officer Helio Vieira was shot in the head and died. The other officers suffered minor injuries when the windows of their vehicle shattered.

Moraes said two suspects had been identified but were not yet in custody as of Thursday afternoon. He denounced what he called a “cowardly attack.”

Randy DeSoto at Western Journalism reports that Brazil’s President Michel Temer declared Friday a national day of mourning for the fallen officer.

“On Tuesday, two windows were shattered on a bus carrying journalists from an Olympic venue in the impoverished Deodoro district. Rio organizers said the bus was hit by a rock, even though one passenger, who identified herself as a former American military officer, believed the cause to be gunfire. There were no serious injuries,” the Associated Press reported.

Brazil has deployed 85,000 security personnel–double the 2012 London Games–to protect the thousands of athletes and estimated one-half million tourists in Rio.
