Oliveira had gone to buy gasoline for his mother’s car, when he saw some members of his family involved in an altercation.“One guy came up and pointed a gun at my nephew’s face, and that’s when people started pushing each other,” Oliveira said. “They had machetes, knives, a grenade. They threw a grenade in my direction. Fragments flew to my leg and my foot.”



According to a media source, Alex ‘Cowboy’ Oliveira is fine now having suffered minor injuries.

Alex “ Cowboy “ Oliveira is ok. Having a grenade explode near you but only getting a few shrapnel splinters is a lucky day! Crazy country where people get attacked with granades!!!

Oliveira went to the local hospital to have a small surgery to remove the grenade fragments from his leg. Oliveira has recorded his statement about what happened to the local police officers in his hometown of Tres Rios, near Rio De Janeiro.
