According to witnesses, the young man explained to the officials that he was a candidate for deputy and was carrying out his campaign in a normal manner, which is why he would not retire. At that time, military guards shot him at very close range and hit his hand and back.

Despite being wounded, the troops took him into custody, at which point the PT militant took advantage of registering a video that went live to his social networks.

"I was not doing anything, I was just panning," he says with difficulty in the audiovisual record while recording his wounds. At this time, Renato Almeida Freitas is in the Cajuru Hospital.
