The victim was shot yesterday in San Telmo when leaving work. He died from a gunshot to the head. According to police sources, the gun of the federal police officer went off by accident, when the officer ran to capture three children who had just robbed a wallet.
However, witnesses, colleagues and relatives of the young man are confident that his gun went off accidentally regardless of this incident. There are suspicions that the shooting was in relation to student groups that got together in the area. Supposedly, police groups were arriving to arrest the students, when the gun was fired.
The case is being investigated and the officer is temporarily under arrest.
