A passenger, who did not want to be identified, told g1 that the shooter was wearing a mask and cap, and that she did not notice any strange movement in the wagon. Suddenly, with the sound of the door opening, she heard a shot, and the shooter got off the train soon after, at Magalhães Bastos station.
“The shooter waited for that signal from the door for the execution. It was all well calculated,” she said. “It was just a shot to the head and the guy left. I don’t think anyone recognizes him”, she concluded.
