Three men with heavy weapons spotted a rival outside his home in Limoncito Tuesday morning and fired at him 25 times, judicial agents said.
The victim, identified by the last name of Salas, not only survived but was reported in satisfactory condition at the Hospital Tony Facio in Limón Centro.
Investigators had enough information on the make and model of the car in which the gunmen fled that they were able to locate it not long after the 9 a.m. shooting.
Agents reported that they detained three men, all in their 20s, and confiscated two AK-47 firearms and cartridges.
The men are facing attempted murder allegations.
