Sniper shot a man in the Republic of Children
La Plata, September 10, 2012
A sniper wounded a man in his leg, while he was walking with his daughter in the park “The Children’s Republic” in mid-afternoon.
Jorge Alegre, 51, enjoyed a little train ride with his daughter and 50 other people, when someone opened fire from a boundary building to the park.
Alegre was wounded in the leg up to his thigh, while his daughter was a few centimeters away, who was not hit by a bullet miraculously.
The victim of the attack was quickly attended by doctors of the park and fortunately the wound was not too serious, and he was discharged the same day.
Meanwhile, police quickly identified where the bullets came and conducted an operation lock. They managed to arrest a young man of about 20 years old with his mentally impaired. He said to be in the field hunting animals, but pointed directly to the park full of families with young children.
