Five Gunned Down During Local Festival in Colombia

BOGOTA – Five people were killed and 10 others wounded when an unknown assailant opened fire at a dance hall during Carnival celebrations in the southern Colombian town of Tuquerres, an official of the Nariño provincial government told Efe on Monday.

The fatalities were all members of a single family, Fabio Trujillo said.

The massacre followed an altercation, according to the provincial secretary, who said the attacker left the hall after the confrontation only to return with a gun and start shooting indiscriminately.

Though the incident took place in a community of Pasto Indians, the deed was “not political,” Trujillo said.

He said the injured are being treated at hospitals in Tuquerres and Pasto, Nariño’s capital.

Tuquerres Mayor Gloria Bolaños and the police commander in Nariño, Col. William Montezuma Lopez, convened a town meeting to discuss public safety. EFE
