Judicial agents have detained a juvenile in the murder of Allan Sánchez, who also was a member of the Judicial Investigation Organization. The 32-year-old investigator was on a day off due to a minor injury.
The man was gunned down by someone on a motorcycle as he left a home in Alajuelita Friday.
The Ministerio Público announced the arrest of the minor Saturday and said that a juvenile judge would be sought to seek action against him.
In another case of gun play involving a judicial agent in a separate incident an off-duty investigator broke up a robbery attempt Friday night at a bar in Tibás and killed two assailants. A third fled but was believed wounded. The judicial agent was with his family watching the Brazil-Costa Rica soccer game when the men burst into the bar. The bartender suffered a bullet wound.
