Thus it was discovered that the criminals crossed Francisco de Orellana Avenue and spent a few minutes watching the victim while he was in his vehicle.
Wilson Fernando Torres, a Florida district police officer, said that after Pinto was executed, the killers ran one block to where a black car awaited them in which they fled.
The Police also reported that the victim had three criminal records for the crimes of drug trafficking and possession of weapons. He was arrested in 2014 with 30 doses of drugs and although in 2015 he was dismissed, supposedly due to lack of evidence, the Police presume that he is dedicated to micro-trafficking and that is why they executed him.
So far in 2021, in Zone 8 (Guayaquil, Durán and Samborondón) at least 586 violent deaths have been registered. 80% of the crimes are for the fight of territory for the sale of drugs. (I)
