The incident, which occurred after Gremio Anapolis’ 2-1 loss to against Centro Oeste, was captured in a shocking video.

The viral clip appears to show players and staff from both Brazilian clubs arguing with one and other on the touchline, with the cause for the fracas yet to be reported.

A police officer then opens fire and strikes Souza in the thigh with a rubber bullet.

The gunshot left Souza with a gruesome injury and saw the goalkeeper rushed to hospital after receiving first aid in an ambulance on site.

Gremio released a statement on the club’s social media platforms confirming the incident and announcing their intention to take measures to ensure the person responsible is punished.

The statement read: “The Anapolis Guild comes to the public to repudiate the unfortunate, ridiculous and revolting event, at the Jonas Duarte Stadium, this Wednesday night.

“After the end of the match against Centro Oeste, our goalkeeper Ramon Souza was cowardly hit by a rubber bullet, carried out by a police officer.
