18-year-old girl died after being shot by a policeman who chased criminals
An 18-year-old girl was killed last night by a police officer who fired several shots at four criminals who assaulted the restaurant “Me Piace” located between 9 and 54 St., La Plata city.
The incident occurred at 22:30 last night when two armed robbers entered the restaurant when it was packed with customers.
While other two accomplices were left out, the assailants began to move from table to table, subtracting money, cell phones and other items of value.
In those circumstances, the offenders were found with a policeman, who, after identifying himself as such, faced them.
In this situation, the robbers escaped and the officer began to chase them.
The criminals covered their escape with gunfire and in the midst of persecution; a bullet fired by the officer hit a young woman who occasionally walked by.
The victim, identified as Nelida Soledad Bow, 18, was wounded in the hip and although it was immediately taken to the hospital San Martín de La Plata, died shortly after admission.
