La Paz, Baja California Sur – According to local news media, it is believed that the two people recently murdered in La Paz were innocent. This involves an 18-year old shot Friday night outside a mini supermarket on colonia La Fuente, and another 30-year old man shot the next night in front of Parque de Los Mangos, in colonia Indeco. In each case, it is believed their lives and activities had nothing to do with organized crime.
El Sudcaliforniano published today that in the first case, the 18-year old, originally from La Paz, died outside a mini market located on calles Circuito Los Bledales and Playa from several bullet impacts. This event was around 8PM last September 25, and authorities found 9mm bullet cartridges.
A relative of the dead man said he was a student and “he went to visit a friend, and by a twist of fate he had bad luck…he was a good boy, and was in Los Cabos. He came to La Paz to study and what happened was not thought of.”
In the second case, on Saturday night, September 26, another man who was 30 years old, and originally from La Paz, was shot on bulevar Francisco J. Mujica and Dátil, in colonia Indeco, near a fruit stand in front of Parque de Los Mangos. The man was was shot with a 9mm weapon and was taken to the Salvatierra Hospital, however he died.
Regarding that case, Colectivo Perícu determined that the hit men had been confused. In a Facebook publication, it was said the man had one leg and part of an arm amputated when he was electrocuted when he worked for the Federal Electricity Commission. He was described as “a great young worker, a struggler, and an exemplary father and husband,” who left helpless his wife “and two little children who will have to learn on their own.”
