Gunshots were fired at a Rio Olympics media bus on Tuesday, August 9. According to Reuters and the Associated Press, a bus carrying journalists at the Summer Games was hit by gunfire while driving from the basketball venue to the main Olympic Park.
According to passengers, shots could be heard hitting the bus’ windows. The windows shattered and left at least two people with minor lacerations, Reuters reports.
"We were shot at. I mean, we could hear the report of the gun," passenger Sherryl "Lee" Michaelson, who works for a basketball publication in Rio, told the outlet.
Another passenger told the Associated Press that they could hear “popping noises.”
According to Fox News, Rio organizing committee spokesman Mario Andrada said, “We don't know yet if the bus was shot, or it was a stone."
