A patron of a Tamarindo dance club died from an injury sustained early Saturday.
The man, 22, and identified by the last name of Dixon, suffered a wound from a sharp instrument in the stomach, said the Judicial Investigating Organization. Rescue workers took him to a nearby private clinic and then to the Clínica de Santa Cruz where he was dead on arrival, said the agency.
A 26-year-old suspect in the killing was detained by investigators two hours after the incident also in Tamarindo. The man was held for prosecutors.
