A criminal was stopped by the police after attempting to carry out a shooting at a sports area in Rímac. The incident took place on Sunday, and was captured on video by Canal N. The attacker had threatened a group of young people who were participating in a sports championship, prompting neighbors to notify the local police station.

In response to the threat, five police officers arrived at the scene and surrounded the toilets where the attacker was hiding. They ordered the individual to come out with his hands up, but he emerged with a gun in hand, ready to shoot. One of the officers then shot the criminal in the right leg in order to disarm him. The criminal only dropped his weapon when he was about to faint.
