Five injured in shootings and knifings in same Lisbon street

In the space of four hours on Saturday five men were either shot or knifed in the same street in Olaias, Rua Wanda Ramos (named after the writer/ translator of that name who arrived in Portugal from Angola in 1958). The first incidents took place mid-afternoon: two men were shot in what has been described as a “family skirmish”. They are both now in hospital. Then at 7.30pm three men were knifed, one in the chest. Both incidents saw suspects arrested, say reports.
