Major Miguel Naranjo, deputy chief of the Portete district, indicated that the approximately 34-year-old man had been intercepted by an individual who came directly to shoot him.
“The individual gets off a motorcycle and proceeds to fire several shots from a firearm on his humanity,” he explained.
Naranjo added that the victim’s body has four ballistic signs of entry, possibly from a revolver-type weapon.
It was learned that the man was in the company of two of his children, who were not injured. The children were handed over to relatives.
The body of the deceased was recovered around 17:00.
The deputy chief of the Portete district explained that investigation tasks are being carried out to determine the causes of the murder. It is still being investigated if the deceased has a record or if he would have been threatened before.
The site was cordoned off by the Police to collect ballistic evidence and collect versions of witnesses. (YO)
