Suspects detained due to police officer’s murder

Written By Lara Silva

Three suspects have been detained as of Monday after Police Officer Fábio Guerra died in São José hospital, three days after falling into a coma. Fábio Guerra, 26, belonged to the 64th precinct of Alfragide and did not survive the physical assault that occurred Saturday morning near the club MOME in Lisbon.

Three men were detained by Monday for suspected murder. Two of the three suspects are members of the military, the Portuguese armed forces and one of these is a boxer in a sports club near Lisbon. The three suspects are 21, 22, and 24 years old. They will be present at the Criminal Court on Wednesday.

The incident occurred at around 6:30 am on Saturday outside the club MOME in Lisbon. Four police who were not on duty intervened to stop a large fight between various citizens and ended up getting physically assaulted by one of the groups.

The four agents of the national police force were admitted to the S. José hospital after the incident after sustaining injuries. Three of them were discharged that same day, while Fábio Guerra remained in critical condition.

There have been vigils all over the country, particularly in front of Fábio Guerra’s precinct in Alfragide.
