trasladados-Medicatura-Forense-indicios-ocurrido(QCostarica) What was behind the shootout inside a dental office in Limon on Thursday, where the assailant and a preschool teacher were killed and a police officer wounded?

The Organismo de Investigación Judicial (OIJ) identified the shooter, a 22 year old (his last name Green), who was working as a bodyguard at the time of the shooting, sitting in the waiting room for his boss (a man whose identity was not released to the press) that was having dental treatment at the time.

Deputy director of the OIJ, Gerald Campos Valverde, explained that the shooting began when a young man, an 18 year old named Davies, entered the clinic, armed, with intent to hold it up.

Davies gained entrance when the receptionist opened the door for Ronny Carballo Leon, 32, a local police official who was a patient at the clinic, forcing his way into the medical office, gun waiving. “This is a stick up”, he shouted asking for the wallets and cellular phones of the people in the waiting room.

The director said the assailant’s gun, a .38 revolver must have jammed and as he did not fire off even one round. Green, however, fired off several round from his .9mm, one of the bullets hitting Julieta Patricia Sawyers, 60 years old, standing at the reception counter, having just come out of the dentist’s office.

In the confusion, Campos said Green also chased the police official, who was in civilian clothing and believed to be an accomplice to the stick up, and shot at him.

“The official, who was on his day off and dressed in civilian clothing, who knocked on the door was believed to be an accomplice of the assailant. Perhaps for his clothing…what happens is that he comes and knocks on the door, the receptionist, as she did knew him and was client, opens the door for him. At the same time, the assailant takes the opportunity to force his way in to stick up the clinic,” said Campos.

“The policeman was unarmed, on hearing the gunshots, takes cover in a bathroom, when Green chases him shoots at him. He was hit on the shoulder and neck,” said Campos.

The wounded police official was treated at the Hospital Tony Facio, where he is in stable condition recovering from his gunshot wounds.

Davies (the assailant) was shot three times, once in the head and twice in the body and the woman one shot to the head. Both weapons, the assailant’s .38 and Green’s .9mm had been reported stolen; neither Davies nor Green had a permit to carry weapons, said the OIJ in a statement.

The Fiscalia (prosecutor’s office) has yet to determine what Green will be charged with.
