The dead woman was identified as Yerling Pamela Duarte Sosa, 23 years of age, a native of Barranca de Puntarenas, her husband, a Guatemalan national, was identified as Mario Roberto Suchite Castillo, 44 years of age. They were married since 2014.

Jose Domingo Cruz, regional director of the Fuerza Publica (police), said the motive for the double murder was unclear.

“We believe they were followed before the gunmen opening fire on them. Despite an intense search, they (the shooters) could not be found,” said Cruz.

Street vendor retaliates. In a separate and unrelated incident earlier Thursday afternoon, around 2:40pm, in barrio San Jose de Dulce Nombre de Coronado, a street vendor gunned down an assailant, who with an accomplice, had approached him to purchase a phone card.

Authorities say there was a scuffle between the vendor, a Colombian national, and his attacker.

Jose Franciso Cordero, deputy director of the Fuerza Publica, explained the foreigner decided to fire when he came under attack. Police found a 9mm gun on the deceased man, identified as Rafael Arias Guzmán, 38 years of age. The accomplice took off in the get away car.
