Minor rams car into presidential palace

A minor has been detained for ramming a car into Alvorada Palace, the Brazilian presidential palace.

When the vehicle approached the gate at 7 P.M. last night, police fired warning shots. When the vehicle did not stop, police fired at the vehicle.

The minor rammed into the gate but was not hurt. It’s unsure if President Michel Temer was inside. He was recently charged with arranging to take bribes from a meat processing company. He could be removed from office and face trial.
