A woman fled a domestic quarrel, but agents said that the man involved followed her and shot her in the head Tuesday night.
The woman, identified by the last name of Nuñez, fled the home in San Miguel de Desamparados after an argument. She took refuge at the home of friends in Calle la Gloria, Guatuso de Patarrá de Desamparados, said the Judicial Investigating Organization.
But soon a man arrived with a gun and tried to kill her. Agents said that someone deflected the weapon, and the bullet did not have the result that the gunman expected. Then he fled, they said. Fuerza Pública officers detained a suspect later.
The woman was hospitalized.
