Woman suffers 10 bullets, ex-boyfriend surrenders himself

Although she is listed in very delicate condition, a woman endured 10 bullet wounds believed administered by a .22-caliber pistol.

The 30-year-old woman has the last name of Cubero. She entered the Hospital Max Peralta in Cartago Sunday morning from a section known as Guadelupe. She had the bullet wounds all over her body, said the Judicial Investigating Organization.

A former boyfriend is the primary suspect. That man surrendered himself to Fuerza Pública shortly after the 10 a.m. shooting, agents said. Police confiscated a .22-caliber pistol.

The judicial report said that the woman was walking to a supermarket when she was confronted by the gunman who fled in a car.

The woman was transferred to  Hospital Calderón Guardia later Sunday, agents said.
