Why was the doctor Jesús María García murdered in Villanueva?

Doctor Jesús María García Oñate was shot to death in Villanueva, La Guajira, while he was on his way to the Santo Tomás Hospital to start his shift, the morning of this Friday, April 19. García Oñate was shot multiple times by an unknown man, leaving him seriously injured.

Despite the community’s efforts to transfer him to a medical center, García Oñate arrived without vital signs, the victim of several gunshot wounds to the face and chest. The shock turned into outrage when the community demanded justice, demanding the capture of the alleged murderer.

Following the incident, riots broke out in the area, leading to a joint deployment of the Army and Police to restore order in the municipality.

The authorities began an operation to maintain calm in the municipality and managed to capture the suspect, who was found with a 38-caliber weapon, presumably used in the crime.

The Secretary of Government of La Guajira, Misael Vásquez, thanked the community for its quick response, which led to the capture of the suspect. According to initial investigations, the crime could be related to a personal conflict between the murderer and the father of the deceased doctor.

The unfortunate death of doctor García Oñate adds to the worrying homicide statistics that continue to increase in the department of La Guajira.
