A bus with foreign journalists at the Rio Games was hit by gunfire


“No only just a wound from the glass pieces but nothing too big, luckily. It could be so much worse. It could be more bullets, could be a bullet targeting someone. I guess we are all lucky to be alive now,” Kaan Korkmaz, an Olympic Volunteer from Turkey said. It’s supposed it was a small calibre handgun that was shot at the bus at an angle. Brazilian police haven’t commented yet on what the motive for the shooting may have been. There are no info about the attacker.On Saturday, a bullet hit the equestrian center, missing journalists there by just a few feet. Some 85,000 security, police, and military personnel are on the ground during the Games in Rio. However there are rumors in the media about a lax approach on security screening people in the area.
