A 35-year-old man was shot on 27 February at Avenida da Universidade, in Aveiro, by two men who fled, a source from the Public Security Police (PSP) told Lusa.

"The man was shot at about 1:40am on 27 February on the public road on Avenida da Universidade," said the same source.

The man was transported to the Aveiro Hospital.


It is so bizarre as Portugal is known to be amongst the safest countries in the world. Obviously crime can never be ruled out even in a peaceful place like Aveiro. It makes you realise that we cannot take things for granted and that the world is really going mad. Let's hope this young man recovers and the offenders are eventually caught. Despite this isolated yet terrible event, Portugal still remains as one of the countries with the lowest crime rates. Portuguese people, please keep it that way!
