A mother and her child barely escaped with their lives when armed gunman entered their bedroom early Thursday morning and shot the father and husband dead.
The murder took place in the Pacuare sector of Limón in the residence of the family. Authorities say the 28-year-old father, identified by the name of Kelly, was shot between 15 and 20 times with a revolver and some type of heavy firearm. The baby and the mother were not injured.
The two killers entered the residence at 4:30 a.m. wearing ski masks, said the Judicial Investigating Organization. After committing the crime they fled in an automobile, authorities reported. It was not reported if anything was stolen from the house and agents are still determining a motive for the crime.
