While the man died instantly in the attack, the woman’s condition was taken to a serious health center.
According to the first versions, the truth would obey an account against the man. Mebog forensic police units verify cameras in the industry to identify the attackers and their escape routes.
Authorities announced that the incident occurred in the morning when the couple was leaving a workplace. At that moment, several men on motorcycles entered the workplace, They unsheathed the weapon and killed the victims in broad daylight and in front of passersby.
And it was precisely these events that would have been the best in terms of security and homicides in recent years, as Security Minister Aníbal Fernández de Soto said that homicides in the capital have decreased by close to 16% so far this year, both in the first half and in June.
This data contrasts not only with violent hitmen, but also with the appalling figure of 30 murders that occurred between March and June. The victims were tortured, strangled, and even burned.
And one of the crimes that has apparently hit the nation’s capital with greater violence in the last two months has been murder, particularly in the form of torture and contract killings.

But figures from the Secretariat of Security (SDS) say there were 95 homicides in May, 18.8% lower than the record for the same period in 2021, when cases hit the incident ceiling of 117. On the other hand, when homicide data so far this year are compared to the same period of 2019 (pre-pandemic), it is clear that there is an increase from 414 cases in 2019 to 437 in the January-May total of 2022.
Now, despite these numbers, the reality is that this time the panorama is different: Bogota experienced a bloody battle between micro-smuggling gangs for control of the drug trade in the first half of the year, which resulted in numerous murders. , as confirmed by the Bogota Prosecutor’s Office to EL TIEMPO.
Finally, criminal lawyer Rafael Báez of Manuela Beltrán University explains that the number of murders and violent deaths in Bogota cannot be separated from the prominent drug trafficking market that has settled in the capital. According to Báez, it was this dispute over territory that had caused the deaths in recent months.
“These numbers cannot distract us from the micro-trafficking activities that have unleashed the war between criminal organizations and ended the lives of many men and women in recent days,” he said.
