A man believed to be between the ages of 25 and 30 was killed near the San Rafael de Escazú Catholic church in Escazú just before midnight Sunday. The man, who had yet to be identified, was walking along a public path before two persons on a motorcycle pulled up and attacked him, according to the Judicial Investigating Organization.
One of the assailants supposedly shot the victim numerous times on the left side of his back and his arm. Initial reports suggest that the two assailants fled once the man fell onto the public roadway.
Agents from the organization’s homicide department are seeking to determine the man’s identity, as well as tracking down possible killers and their motive.
