21-year-old dies in one of two ‘mysterious shootings’ in and around capital

PJ Police are investigating

In less than 48 hours, two “mysterious shootings” occurred in and around the capital. A 21-year-old man died in the most serious incident.

The young man was shot twice in the back in Rio de Mouro, a district of Sintra within the Greater Lisbon Region. known for violent crime.

Reportedly, he may have been specifically targeted (i.e. the incident is considered a gang-driven “hit”). PJ (Judicial Police) is investigating.

But the first incident early Thursday morning was even more puzzling.

It involved a ‘pleasure boat’ on the Tagus River hired for private parties. As the passengers were about to disembark, two cars appeared to “appear at high speed” and fire was fired in the direction of the passengers from both.

“It was a miracle that there were no casualties,” Correio da Magnan wrote today. In fact, the only damage was to one of his cars parked nearby, apparently hit by a bullet.

The Coast Guard and local PSP were called to the scene and the investigation was turned over to PJ.
