Two murdered in taxi in Desamparados

An 87-year-old man homebound from a medical visit took the wrong pirate taxi Wednesday.

Judicial investigators said that gunmen caught up with their target, the driver, just 100 meters from where the elderly man boarded the vehicle. The gunmen on a motorcycle killed both the passenger, identified by the last name of Carballo, and the driver, who had the last name of Venegas. He was 26. The shooting happened in mid-afternoon in San Rafael Arriba de Desamparados.
