The police in Paraty, in Rio de Janeiro, identified, this Monday (4), three more suspects of shooting with a firearm at the car of bassist Rinaldo Amaral, known as Mingau, from the band Ultraje a Rigor.
Chief Marcello Russo, head of the city’s police station, said that searches are being carried out to locate them.
The identification of the suspects was based on evidence and hearings collected by the Rio de Janeiro Civil Police.
Russo said that the three new suspects are members of the faction that controls drug trafficking in the region. The delegate had already revealed to the CNN that Mingau was shot in a community in Paraty dominated by the Comando Vermelho.
On Sunday (3), police arrested the first suspect in the crime after an anonymous tip.
According to Russo, the detainee was identified as João Victor, 29 years old, also a member of the criminal faction active in the region.
The Civil Police asked for his preventive detention, which will undergo a custody hearing this Monday (4). The delegate informed that he did not testify and will only speak in court.
With him, a .40 caliber pistol and ammunition was seized. At the scene of the crime, agents found three cases with ammunition and a detonated projectile of the same caliber. The police investigate whether the evidence is related to the crime.
