The El Perú police station, in El Callao municipality, south of Bolívar state, south Venezuela, came under sustained fire with more than 100 bullets smacking into its walls. According to police records, a gang of 15 gunmen identified as members of the so-called "mining unions" arrived on motorbikes in the evening of August 23 and began opening fire on the police station. They intended to get back a belt pack containing guns, bullets and memory storage devices.
