A man walking in Bajo Los Rodríguez in Llorente de Tibás received a bullet in the left leg Sunday afternoon, and police still do not know why.
They managed to detain two men walking nearby and confiscated a .38 pistol, they said. They identified the men by the last names of Cordero Rivas and Torre Riso.
By the time police arrived at the shooting scene, the victim had gone to the hospital in a private vehicle. The suspects carried no identification, said police.
Robbers sometimes shoot a victim in the leg to disable and give them time to escape.
