Moscow/Sputnik/UNI: Nine people were trampled to death Sunday when a police chase and gunfire sparked a stampede at a party in Brazilian city of Sao Paulo, media reported.

According to Brazilian newspaper Folha de S.Paulo, the stampede occurred at a party with 5,000 people as a result of police attempts to detain two men in the Paraisopolis area.


Police spokesman Emerson Massera told reporters that the two suspects fired guns at police, escaped on a motorcycle and entered the funk music party, after which police used rubber bullets and chemicals, as cited by the newspaper.


A spontaneous protest erupted in the streets of Paraisopolis with community members calling for justice, according to news portal G1.


Sao Paulo Governor Joao Doria said he ordered a full investigation to clarify circumstances and responsibilities.
