Gunmen cut down a man on a motorcycle as he rode on the autopista Florencio del Castillo early Wednesday.
A 25-year old passenger accompanying the 27-year-old man suffered bullet wounds. The dead man was identified by the last name of Santamaría.
The Florencio del Castillo is the highway between San José and Cartago. The Judicial Investigating Organization said the 1 a.m. shooting happened when the occupants of another motorcycle begin shooting.
