Shooting In Puerto Rico Gas Station-Bar Leaves Four Dead And Five Wounded


SAN JUAN — Authorities say a shootout outside a gas station bar east of the Puerto Rican capital has left four people dead and five wounded.

Police Superintendent Jose Luis Caldero said authorities were searching for those responsible for the shootings that occurred early Sunday in the community of Corozal, about 15 miles (25 kilometers) east of San Juan.

The motive for the attack was unknown.

Those killed were all men. Four men and a woman were wounded.

A wave of violence in this U.S. commonwealth has left 588 people dead so far this year, more than all the people who were killed in Puerto Rico in 2015.
