The small town of Toa Baja, Puerto Rico was rocked by a violent and deadly shooting late Monday night at the business establishment of convicted former mayor Félix “El Cano” Delgado Montalvo. The incident, which claimed five lives and left several others injured, has left the community reeling.

Among the victims was Kevin Marc Etorma, a 30-year-old soldier from the United States Navy, and a friend of the former mayor’s relative. The shooting, which occurred at “La Casita del Árbol” in the Campanillas neighborhood, also seriously injured Daniel Delgado Álvarez, 29, who is hospitalized in critical condition.

Delgado Montalvo was present at his business during the attack and was interviewed by investigators as a witness and victim. According to reports, he was inside the establishment when gunmen opened fire and he sought shelter on the floor. He accompanied his injured brother to the hospital.

The former mayor’s lawyer, Juan F. Matos De Juan, was quick to clarify that the violent incident was not related to his client’s previous legal issues. Delgado Montalvo is set to be sentenced on March 13 in relation to his guilty plea for corruption charges.

The shooting was reportedly targeted at Xavier Matos Rivera, known as “Maco,” who was killed in the attack. Matos Rivera was a known figure in the criminal underworld, with connections to drug points in the area and suspected involvement in multiple murders. His brother, José L. Matos Rivera, also succumbed to his injuries.
