A woman in Naranjo Tuesday night took the service pistol of her live-in companion and shot him, said officials. He was hospitalized in critical condition.
The man is a Tránsito officer. He was identified by the Poder Judicial by the last names of Jiménez Salas. The
woman was identified by the last names of Castillo Casanova.
Prosecutors did not seek to put the woman in prison. Instead prosecutors asked a judge to order the woman to stay away from the man and sign in with them every 15 days. The pair lived together but it was not clear if they were husband and wife.
