Rio de Janeiro, Aug 11: Nobody was hurt when a bullet struck one of the stables at the Olympic equestrian center here on Wednesday, a spokesman for the 2016 Rio Games organising committee said.
Last Saturday, a bullet went through the roof of the press room at the equestrian center, located in Rio de Janeiro's Deodoro neighborhood, reports Efe. [Bullets were fired at media bus]
The weekend incident was attributed to an attempt by a shooter in a nearby shantytown to hit one of the camera-equipped blimps that provide footage for Olympic television coverage.
A bus carrying journalists between Olympic venues was pelted with stones on Tuesday.
