    ... happened and just heard someone saying that somebody pulled a gun. Apparently one of the small bars at the beach got robbed and a gun was fired, leading to a panic – perfect conditions for Copacabana robbers. There was a weird tension in the air and when it started raining the atmosphere was at the lowest I have experienced in the whole cup.
