La Garita man welcomed home with bullets, death

A 21-year-old man with the last name of Abarca died in La Garita Wednesday shortly after returning to the country, said the Judicial Investigating Organization.

A friend had picked him up at Juan Santamaria airport and took him to the home in La Garita where he died, agents said. At least three men arrived and engaged him in a discussion that ended in gun play, agents said.

Agents did not say that there had been an arrest, although that was reported Wednesday night by local police.
