QCOSTARICA – In less than 12 hours two shoots outs occurred in San José Thursday, the first before noon in the heart of the city, the second in the evening, in Sabana Norte, in front of the Nissan dealership.

Believed to be a “settling of scores”, three men and a woman were involved in a shooting on Avenida 10 and Calle 2. The shooting took place in the middle of the busy street, with those responsible then taking refuge in a “cuarteria” (rooming house) when police caught up with them.
