The Barranquilla Metropolitan Police confirmed that the son of alias La Gata, Jorge Luis Alfonso López, was the victim of an attack at a medical center in the city. He was trying to negotiate with the Special Jurisdiction for Peace (JEP).

It is worth remembering that Alfonso López was convicted of the murder of journalist Rafael Enrique Prins Velásquez, in Magangué, Bolívar. Recently, he had raised his voice to join the JEP.

Judicial sources confirmed to SEMANA that He presented health problems in his place of confinement and was referred to the IPS Medicliniclocated on Carrera 47, between streets 80 and 82.

Witnesses recounted the shocking moment: “Many shots were heard and one believed they were police, when shots were heard inside the clinic.”

One more recounted the seconds of anxiety: “They arrived in three trucks and two motorcycles. The motorcycles went into the wrong direction and the truck turned around, there were about seven guys who were dressed as police officers and one believed it was an operation, when the shooting broke out.”

Apparently, the hitmen had entered a wrong room and the staff guarding alias El Gatico confronted them to prevent the attack.

At the moment, the authorities activated a lock plan to locate those responsible for this event, since they managed to escape in private cars.
