The Merchant Murder

The owner of a small pantry in farm 94 of the provincial capital, 31 years old, was shot to death during the early hours of yesterday inside his premises after going out to answer the call of at least people -apparently hooded- who moments before they arrived at the place.

From the first data provided by spokespersons consulted in the case, it transpired that the attack occurred around 3:30 on Sunday when the merchant and his partner were resting inside the dwelling.

According to neighbors consulted by this morning, Díaz used to attend his business 24 hours a day and for this reason it was common for the locals to come to buy at dawn.

That is why it was not surprising that at a certain moment the couple heard that a person, from the sidewalk, hit their hands.

Given this, the man went to answer the call from a window that overlooks the front of his business, where he received a burst of shots from alleged hooded men.

Frightened by the noise, the woman became desperate, sheltered her children and after waiting a few moments until the shots stopped, she went to the aid of the merchant who was found lying and seriously injured inside his business.

Moments later, after the arrival of an ambulance at the scene, the rescuers found that the owner of the house had died.
