In the minimarket, a 60-year-old man was wounded in the leg, who would be out of danger.

We cannot continue to live in fear or count more victims in La Pintana. This has to stop,” tweeted Mayor Claudia Pizarro.La community chief said on the Mega channel that they are evaluating redirecting municipal funds to build a police station in the northern part of the town, where these acts of violence would be concentrated. “I’ve been asking for it for five years. We’re going to have to go into debt,” he lamented.
