Puerto Viejo bar shooting suspect detained

Judicial agents on the Caribbean coast finally caught up with a 21-year-old man suspected of shooting up the inside of a Puerto Viejo bar as the climax of an argument. That happened last Nov. 3, and five persons, three men, a woman and a minor girl, suffered bullet wounds, said agents.

The suspect was detained Monday afternoon near his home in Paraíso de Sixaola, also on the Caribbean coast. He faces allegations of attempted murder.

Agents said that the early morning argument was based on personal problems.  There was no indication why a 17-year-old minor girl would be in a bar at that time.
