In response to the increasing levels of gun violence racking Brazil, smartphone apps have been released in that country which tell users where gunshots have been reported or where active firefights are ongoing.

Two apps, “Fogo Cruzado” or Cross Fire, and “Onde Tem Tiroteio” Where are the Firefights, have been developed in conjunction with aid groups and concerned citizens about the threat of gun violence Brazilians face. The apps are intended to keep users informed on shootings so that they may avoid those areas.

“Our job here is not to denounce anyone, we do not have a direct focus on the police or on the drug gangs,” Henrique Coelho Caamaño, a volunteer for the Onde Tem Tiroteio app, told Reuters. “Our focus is really to get people out of the way of stray bullets.”
