Gunmen attack Rio de Janeiro police station, torch buses

May 28, 2016 - 12:00 PM

RIO DE JANEIRO - Brazilian authorities say gunmen opened fire on a police station in Rio de Janeiro and then torched two buses in the city's bohemian Santa Teresa neighbourhood.

Police said Saturday that nobody was hurt in the previous night's incidents and there were no arrests.

The G1 news portal reported that the attacks may have been in reprisal for the death of a drug trafficker's son during a recent shootout with police.
