Store operator murdered

A robber murdered a 70-year-old store owner Saturday in Barrio México, San José.

Four youngsters seeking to purchase food about 5 p.m. found the man, identified by the last name of Solís, in his Mazatlan pulpería or small store. The man was on the floor of the bathroom with a knife wound in the neck.

The location is Avenida 3 at Calle 24, and the store is well known because it is a landmark for motorists traveling through Barrio México on the northern route out of San José to points west.
