[Ed. – Sounds like the right thing to do in that situation. Couldn’t pay me to go to Rio for these Olympics.]
The attack reportedly occurred on the Avenue das Americas on Thursday morning Rio time, a large thoroughfare directly across a shallow lagoon from Olympic Park, and extremely close to where the Australian Olympic Committee plans to stage several open-air athlete press events on Friday, Rio time.
Rio newspaper O Globo (The Globe) reports that the [Russian] vice-consul was reacting reacted to a robbery. The 60-year-old man, whose identity was not disclosed, was driving with his wife and daughter when his car was caught in a traffic jam. Two suspects approached him and one broke the window of his car with a gun.
The vice-consul, who is an expert in the martial art jiujitsu, took the gun from the burglar and shot him dead. The other man ran away.
