Two men were shot dead by hitmen who carried out the mortal attack, on 25th street, in the Calidonia district.

The first was identified as Roberto Mosquera, a 37-year-old man, whose body ended up lying face down in the street. He was wearing salmon-colored Bermuda shorts and a sweater, black long sleeve. His death was instantaneous after receiving an accurate shot in the head.
The bullets also hit Irving Alberto Pitti Sterling who was transferred to the emergency room of the Santo Tomás Hospital, with a wound in the thigh. He had to enter the operating room, but died minutes later.
After the attack, the hitmen fled the scene in a pick-up vehicle while the National Police began search operations for the perpetrators of this double crime, which occurs in broad daylight and in a public, busy area.
The Public Ministry announced, through its social networks, the beginning of an investigation into this act of blood.
Between gangs, robbery and homicides
Mosquera had in his criminal history cases related to robberies for which he had been apprehended on several occasions since 2004. In 2019, he was linked to a homicide investigation, but he was kept at liberty; and in March of this year, the Public Ministry carried out a search procedure in his apartment located in Calidonia.
Both men belonged to rival gangs. Mosquera was from Los Cofos while Pittí was linked to the Yao Yao.
The last murder in the village was registered Saturday night when 25-year-old Israel Iván Duque was assassinated.
Duque was intercepted by hitmen who shot him when he arrived at the well-known Casa Canavaggio, where he resided.
