Five shot at by gunman in Pavas

Five people were shot in Pavas Saturday night. One of the wounded was reported to be in critical condition in Hospital San Juan de Díos.

The other four victims also were taken to the hospital but were said to be in stable condition, according to a Judicial Investigating Organization report. There were four men and one woman between the ages of 23 and 31 that ended up being shot following a brief argument.

Police reports indicate that one of the wounded saw a subject with a gun in a holster and said it bothered him and looked suspicious. In that moment the individual pulled out the gun and shot at the group multiple times. They ran back to their two cars and drove away while still being shot at, agents said.

Investigators are seeking ballistic evidence that may lead to zeroing in on a suspect.
